A Funny World Isnt It? - Poem by Austin Jeffrey

if its true that money doesnt grow on trees,
why do banks have branches?
why does a round pizza
come ina square box?

why do you still call it a building,
when its already built, ?
why call it kid-napping,
when it involves adults?

if its true that we are here to help others.
then what are others here for?
why doesnt glue stick to its bottle?

lastly, if we are not suppose to drink and drive,
why do bars have parking lots? .....................................
we are just a funny bunch living in a seriously funny world.!
