***paradise-(Part 6) -The Naked Man - Poem by Coach Roth

Coach worked the counter
at a video store in Hollywood...
musicians, actors, drag queens...
to say the clientele was eclectic
was an understatement,
but even Coach was surprised
when a naked man walked into the store.
This could lead to no good.

'Yes, I have a naked man in my store'

'Can you describe him.'

'He's naked.'

'Black or white? '

'White, six two, maybe 200 pounds,
did I mention he was naked? '

'Sir, the police are on their way,
but we need to know who we're
dealing with...'

'Come into the store,
I'll be the guy with clothes on,
he'll be the guy who's naked.'

Frank, Louie, Manny and a
few other cops responded,
maybe a bit of overkill,
but Coach kept them well
supplied with free movies and coffee
because he like having them
there quickly...

They put the guy in handcuffs...
Frank, a burly bulk of a man
tried to get a few laughs
at Coach's expense...

'C'mon Coach, admit it,
you were checking out his package.'

Coach thought carefully and said,
'Maybe so, but you're the one
who likes him in handcuffs.'

That set the cops to laughing
as Frank stormed out...
Louie said
'There goes your Christmas card.'

    This one must be true! It's too ridiculous to be fiction. Like the delivery of this one Coach - you have a great ear for comedy. I wish I'd been there. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply
