Out cruisin’ the hood in my thing-a-gig
Backseat full of ragamuffins cryin’
One rapscallion spotted a whirligig,
And their caterwauling got me fryin’.
The smallest tyke was catawampus.
The whole scene was discombobulated.
The shenanigans were causing a rumpus.
Tryin’ to mollycoddle, I was deflated.
So I turned my jalopy widdershins,
But traffic was such a hodge-podge
A crash with a Jitney had me doin’ spins
With such folderol, I had to get outa Dodge.
The bus was loaded with old curmudgeons
Who raised a hullabaloo that had me flabbergasted.
The hoi-polloi was snooty, as raucous as pigeons,
I prayed for some peace, but the claptrap lasted.
One scallywag was persnickety about the kerfuffle,
He caused such brouhaha, he started a slobberknocker.
Well, one pantywaste got pasted in the muffle.
The sidekick in cahoots got knocked off his rocker.
A pettifogger came around spouting his razzmatazz.
I was not about to be bamboozled by his skullduggery.
Thumped him with a bumbershoot with much pizzazz.
That ended the rigmarole, but he needed surgery.
A bodybus with a sawbones arrived on the scene.
He used a spygmomometer to check the heart,
Plastered some gewgaws and gobblygook on his bean.
That relieved the collywobbles on my part.
If you thought this battychatter didn’t rock
Then you can just ignore this poppycock.
Just a silly poem with a bunch of funny words in it.
