pressed rat and warthog - 15

Pressed rat and warthog have closed down their shop.
They didn't want to; 'twas all they had got.
Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
and pressed rat's collection of dog legs and feet.

Sadly they left, telling no one goodbye.
Pressed rat wore red jodhpurs, warthog a striped tie.
Between them, they carried a three-legged sack,
went straight round the corner and never came back.

Pressed rat and warthog have closed down their shop.
The bad captain madman had told them to stop.
Selling atonal apples, amplified heat,
and pressed rat's collection of dog legs and feet.

The bad captain madman had ordered their fate.
He laughed and stomped off with a nautical gate.
The gate turned into a deroga tree
and his pegleg got woodworm and broke into three.

Robert!
Stop the plagiarism and get on up to Martinsville for our 40th reunion. It's going to be 3 hoots and 10 hollers.

Hey Robert,

I missed you at the reunion, but I know that you were just recently in town due to the passing of your wonderful mother. Mat couldn't find a way to put "Pressed Rat and Warthog" on the DVD, but he had a perfect spot for "Sitting by the Dock of the Bay." You should have seen the spillway we had to cross to get to the Firemen's Cabin last Saturday night. For any of you in the class of '68 who may be reading this, the DVDs went out in mail 05/17/08 as promised, and the DVD does include the squirrel stories for those of you who missed it.

Rita
