Honest Tom, Clever Tom - Poem by Raj Arumugam

Isn't Tom a good boy?
He picks up the handbag
the careless lady forgets
at the food court
and runs after her
and returns the handbag

The lady is pleased
and she opens her handbag
and she says:
'That's funy…
I'm positive I had a $50 note -
but now I've got ten $5 notes…'


'Yeah, ' says Tom…'The last time
I returned a handbag to a lady
she said she didn't have any small change
to give me as a reward;
but you got plenty, Miss…'


Now, isn't Tom a clever boy…







(poem based on an existing joke)
