The Brotherhood of the Traveling Boxers
hit a snag on its debut,
for one man’s junk was just not another man’s treasure.
When Left Sock met Right Sock,
they felt unique & wonderfully-knitted,
until they ended up in the underwear drawer
with Panty, who told them they were
destined to depreciate with every use.
Though their husbands were known as
“Team Wilma” & “Team Betty,”
Kiki & Lulu had no recourse,
for they’d already found their Barney & Fred.
From “Bullwinkle and Friends,”
she’d learned that chocolate pan dowdy
could be hazardous to her health
(rocket fuel being an added ingredient).
From “The Flintstones,”
she’d learned that
a minimalist, animal-print wardrobe
was living like a cave girl.
From Looney Tunes,
she’d learned to stay away from Acme trucks
& never drink alum.
She’d learned a lot of useless things
but from it all,
she’d learned that adults with imagination
had made her Saturday mornings
memorable & bright.
