    Retribution is something you should not fear
    For repeating words that I wrote here.
    You've succeeded in your intent
    To express a splendid sentiment,
    And imitation is flattery most sincere.

    A lady once hired an electrician
    To measure the volts in her kitchen.
    The moment she kissed him,
    She couldn't resist him.
    'Twas the cause of her current condition.

    Always I'll owe the fallen a defrayal of debt
    Who fought for me with neither persuasion nor regret
    I rather humbly say thank you
    I pray you watch over me too
    Am I worthy of the freedom you've sown that I've spent?

    S.J.

    Breathes there a man with soul so dead
    Who never to himself has said
    There's nothing happening here I see
    And so I guess it's up to me
    To try to wake up this old thread?

    A flea and a fly in a flue,
    Were imprisoned, so what could they do?
    Said the fly, "Let us flee!"
    "Let us fly," said the flea,
    And they flew through a flaw in the flue.

    There once was a barmaid named Gail,
    On whose breast was written the price of the ale.
    And on her behind, (for the sake of the blind,)
    Was the same information in Braille.

    There once was a witch in Khartoum
    Who got tired of her old-fashioned broom.
    But you've never seen her
    On her new vacuum cleaner,
    For the line cord will reach just one room.

    Next week's record sale will be a treat.
    The town blocks off the entire street.
    I will search and peruse
    All the Rock and the Blues
    And I know the savings can't be beat.

    A girl at the Copacabana
    Made her costume from just a bandanna.
    The way that she hid
    All the parts that she did
    Is something I can't understanna.

    There was a young fellow of Wheeling
    Endowed with such delicate feeling
    When he read on the door,
    "Don't spit on the floor"
    He jumped up and spat on the ceiling!

    There once was an old man of Esser,
    Whose knowledge grew lesser and lesser,
    It at last grew so small
    He knew nothing at all,
    And now he's a college professor.

    Lionel Ritchie sang with feeling,
    His fans found his voice so appealing.
    He said he was beat
    And had pain in his feet
    From always dancing on the ceiling.

    My favourite month is September,
    Nice moments I always remember.
    But I hate July!
    And do you know why?
    'Cause of the sultry heat in my chamber.

    I really don't like all this heat.
    I sweat from my head to my feet.
    Just leave a bag of ice
    on my chair would be nice
    but I'll end up with a wet seat.

    I just got out of my bed
    And read what the two above said.
    Wouldn't it be neat
    To forget about the heat
    And sit and think cool thoughts instead!

    Let's get Steve to spin records today.
    We'll have a Cool Breeze heading our way.
    He can adjust the speed
    So our sweat doesn't bead
    and relief will soon be here to stay.

    I've heard about Coriolis force;
    It sets breezes blowing of course,
    But can records do it?
    Well, I never knew it.
    Is your turntable a cooling resource?

    One time when brunch was delayed
    Until the lunch table was laid,
    Was I eating two brunches
    Or eating two lunches?
    Don't know and don't care, I'm afraid.

    It appears where now things sit,
    That U-Turn is having a fit.

    No way will they surrender
    To that newest contender ...

    who turned the turntable market to Schitt
    :p

    I have here a brief little riddle:
    When with your turntable you fiddle,
    What records to suggest
    That are sure to be best?
    The kind with the hole in the middle!
