Prunes And Tunes

Rating: 5.0

All prunes are plums
all plums not prunes,
the sound of drums
and healthy tunes
is just a side effect, a sign
and its significance benign.

So let your grandpa chew his prunes
between his battle-hardened gums
he's left behind so many moons
and as he sits and gently hums,
he feels the prunes slip down the line
until it's time, for rise and shine.

A poem talking of the guts
would be of interest to us all,
to follow food from mouth to butts
and second-guess potential stall
would be remiss without the plan:
to prunes you ought to add some bran.

Well, Herbert, that certainly made my day! Now I think I've seen (read) it all! Sort of reminded me of: 'Beans, beans, the musical fruit, The more you eat, the more you toot, The more you toot, the better you feel - I eat beans at every meal! ' Nice job! Linda

Herbert my dear fellow they say many men in their old age die from trying to pass waste products without singing tunes first thing of a morning the tune being accompanied by the drinking of copious amounts of prune juice While partaking of some bran Warm regards AJS
