PostSubject: Why   February 13th 2011, 11:17 am




Why.


Why do buses come in threes?
Then no more come for hours
Why do weeds grow just like trees?
Yet not so my prize flowers.

Why do bills always seem so high?
Yet wage packets disappoint
Why do pigeons traverse the sky?
But their poo, on my head anoint.

Why do markets always boom?
Then crash when I invest
Why can man go to the moon?
Yet can’t tell east from west.

Why do forecasters predict the sun?
And then it pisses down with rain
Why do relatives always come?
When I’m watching the big game.

When just a child I often asked
“Mum, why is this or that?”
She would look at me so lovingly
And say “Shut up you little Pratt”.

Lol, Murphy's law I guess, except the last stanza, that's just one of the rare cases of universal justice, each generation nagging the previous. Smile Very much enjoyed!


Will write, read and comment for food, when in the mood. Smile

Very funny write drfogg, especially the last stanza which is hilarious. I've just read this out loud to my family and they're laughing too, you always manage to raise a smile, you've a real gift for it.

Great write drfogg, thanks for sharing,
