The Mormon Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

The Mormon

Rating: 3.5


Who discovered the surgeon's sham
when he cut on the working class man
and what was inherently wrong
in a man so chipper and strong
he came in and they put him out
and the nurse said he was a Kraut
who had checked in quite full of doubt
then the scalpel went in too deep
put the man in eternal sleep
when the autopsy was all done
the result was that there was none
of the usual conditions there
so the saga was never fair.
Thus the patient was defeated
with a blade that was deep-seated
they wrote in his hospital chart
'he died of an impacted part'
As a mormon with fourteen wives
he did not have several lives
but twenty rambunctious kiddoes
and fourteen religious widows.
