Waiting For The Rain

           

Waiting for the rain

No need to call me insane

Even frogs need rain

 

 

The Tangerines Are

           

The Tangerines are

neither  cruel nor mean, they're just

almost round Tangerine

 

 

I Saw An Old Crow

           

I saw an old crow

And my wife got so angry

I wasn't talking 'bout her

Of that I am sure.

It was her mother.

 

 

My Mom's Name Was Cel

           

My mom's name was Cel

She got angry if you

Called her the name Seal
