By Jerry D. Haight

 Damn banana peal

Concrete hard

Butt hurt

Called 911

Flat tire but police came

Yelled,

Back seat

Slammer

Visited judge

Ten days bread and water

Yelled, ten more days

Shut mouth,

Door opened,


Damned slippery ice

Hard concrete

Butt hurt

Called 911

Broken axle but police came

Yelled,

Back seat

Slammer

Visited judge

Fifteen days bread and water

Yelled, ten more days

Shut mouth

Door opened


Damned bicycle

Tripped, hard concrete

Butt hurt

Called 911

Got Lost but police came

Yelled

Back seat

Slammer

Visited judge

Twenty days bread and water

Yelled

Ten more days

Shut mouth

Door opened


Damned motorcycle

Butt hurts

Called 911

On strike but police came

Yelled

Back seat

Slammer

Visited judge

Thirty days bread and water

Yelled

Ten more days

Shut mouth

Door opened


Damned crack in sidewalk

Butt hurts

called judge

Taped mouth
