A TRIP BACK HOME!

I took my love back home

To meet my kin,

You’ll never guess

What happened then!

 

Ma was on the front porch,

As was her habit,

Canning beans and knitting,

All while skinning a rabbit,

 

Pa was out back,

Dancing a jig,

While sharing a jug

With a one-eyed pig,

 

Things went plum crazy

After that,

My love met Uncle Clem

With his coonskin hat,

 

Things were jest fine

Til Clem tipped his cap,

And my love saw the raccoon

Was still a living chap!

 

My love skedaddled,

It’s half past noon,

Tell her I love her

And to come back soon!   😊
