“INAPROPOS”

Perfect word — the best
While in hospital
A man entered contests
As he lay there undressed.

He was there
Long days and long nights
Having open heart surgery
What a horrendous sight.

His veins were all clogged
Cholesterol reigned
Can you guess what he did
While he was wild with pain?

Sure, what else
You got it right, kid
He won tons of butter, some roast beef
Then you know what he did?

Feeling lucky, of course,
He entered many more
Won a million dollar shopping spree
In an ice cream store.

March 1999
