The Forum - Poem by Josette Lager

Hi I'm from Butcher Hollar
and I get a little hot under
the collar, I'm a honky tonk
angel and proud of it.

I'll make the best darn fried
chicken you ever ate I
guarantee you'll even eat
the plate.I use crisco oil
and a batter I'm wild and
free and I like to chatter,
my guest tonight, is my
friend the mad hatter.

I'm crazy like a fox, and I can
outbox any kangaroo, and kick
better and harder than you do.

I can run like the wind and sing
like a angel, and if I ever fall flat
on my face may God give me
the grace to get up again.

    a fine poem
