Ma & Pa..........episode l

Maw! She smokes a corn cob pipe,
and Pa sleeps on the porch.
Has ta ! Stupid bugger,
burned the Cabin with a torch.
Maw just sits there a'rockin
and listens to him snore,
Pa's lost all motivation,
he don't even fish no more.

I got a job in Bumpkinville
cleanin' brass spitoons,
Bought a TV with my pay
so Ma could watch cartoons.
Pa listened in, heard Fred exclaim,
"Yabba Dabba Doo !!"
Told Ma,"Pack up. We're movin'.
That's what we're gonna do."

Now we live in a dark old cave
on Yippan Holler Hill.
To live up there is wonderful
it really is a thrill !
The little house that was outback
is now at our front door.
Now Ma and Pa don't have to run
as far as they did before !

Thank you Redex. I wrote this poem sometime ago.There are many episodes,but I'm afraid they became spread all over the web.Half of them I can't even find anymore.I thought it would be fun to try to reassemble it and put it all in one place.If I knew then what I know now,I would have written it down in a notebook.I'm pleased you were given a laugh. thumbs up
