A Guy In Trouble At The Speedway - Poem by Chuck Audette

in a dress
I suddenly find
a sea of laughing faces

apparently
I misunderstood
just what a drag race is

    Good Sir, I would like to congratulate you on exposing the true nature of the drag racing frock (flock) and advise that you Sir, are sailing close to the wind of rhyming laws with - faces and race is, and pulled it off with only the narrowest of consonants. Just watch it Mister, we'll be reading your work with renewed interest in case of any further clever rhymes against humanity. (Report)Reply

    You are the master of the pun.
    You keep us all in stitches.
    It's what makes reading you so fun.
    But next time wear your britches!

    I just posted a tribute to Herb Caen. I read him for years in the San Francisco Chronicle. Your poems puts a smile on my face the same as his daily columns diid. Only you are much more broad - with your humor that is.

    Charles,
    You are a sick, sick man - - -
    I am still laughing as I write this - - -
    but, that does not change the fact,
    that you should seek professional help!
    ... really, really SOON!

    Great for standup comic-3 second delivery; 30 second applause, then can lead on to other similar bits of comedic brilliance. (Report)Reply

    Har har har. I guess you stood out from the crowd wearing the dress plus track shoes. Now if you had entered the Drag Queen contest down at the speedway, then everything would have been okay. (Report)Reply
