A man from Iran


There once was
a man from
Iran,
who possessed
a magnificent
tan...
Then he moved to
Mahattan,
Sleeping on
sheets of satin;
when asked why?
he said...
'Cause I can! '

    Crafty and prolific, and still a pleasure to read. The flow is smooth and the wit lighthearted. with a perfect last line. Love this one.10+++++ (Report) Reply
