Happy May Day

It was the first of May
A lovely warm spring day
I was strolling down the street in drunken pride;
But my knees were all a-flutter,
And I landed in the gutter
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.

Yes, I lay there in the gutter
Thinking thoughts I could not utter
When a lady passing by did softly say:
“You can tell a man who boozes
By the company he chooses” —

And the pig got up and slowly walked away.

    I wish the reblog buttons were still working, as I would love to share this on my blog. It is grand. I also wish WordPress would stop changing things that work well and mess everything up. Hugs
