Treasure Island

George Hunter

001 - Nice Guy

I was once a very nice guy
And I was exceedingly shy.
I always said I have to go and do a No.2
When I had to go to the loo.
I could never say I have to take a - - - -
I fact I wouldn't say - - - -
Even if I had a mouth full of it.

And I would never say - - - -
Even though my stomach was bloatin'
And my teeth were floatin'
I could never say I have to - - - -.

I could also never curse.
That just made things worse
I would say merely 'Please leave'
When I really meant
Get the - - - - out of here.

I could never ask people
To do the anatomically impossible
By saying ‘Go - - - - yourself'
Much too uncouth.

I would use words like
Dern, dang, hey and heck
When I really wanted to say - - - - - - - - -!
Or ‘Get your lazy - - - out of bed'
Or ‘How the - - - - should I know? '

I couldn't talk like a trucker
And call a guy A no good - - - - - - - - - - - -.
I would never call a
Puerto Rican a - - - -
Or an Irishman a - - - -
And my problems would get bigger
If I called a man a - - - - - -
Or use language more rich
By calling a man a son of a - - - - -

Oh well.
I'm tired of writing this - - - - - - - rhyme
It has no class.
And if you don't like it
You can stick it up your - - -
Which really means
Place it where the sun don't shine.

If you can fill in any of these blanks
Then you're just about as depraved as I am
Thinkin' it is as bad as sayin' it
So say some righteous - - - - - - - -.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
