Never argue with a walrus,
They're a bit long in the tooth.



Poetic pondering? no just scribble

Poetry is the rich man's idiosyncrasy,
The poor man's luxury.
And the poets necessarity.

The pen is mightier than the sword,
Yeah well my pencil's got a rubber on the end.
Wanna swap it's easier to scratch out mistakes.

Never pour hundred and thousands and wiped cream on your head,
People don't like it when you try to top yourself.

Never argue with a crocodile,
With an alligator personality.

Somebody once asked me,
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Normally I wouldn't have minded,
Then again I was 68 years of age at the time.

When I was young and in my prime,
I used to do it all the time,
But now I've turned 69,
I've forgotten the rest of the Rhythm.
