Treasure Island

Bang! Ouch! ....... [uses of 'bang', the word; funny/not funny; Short]


Bang! was what I heard when the chair leg hit my toe.
ouch! ! was what I said....as toe-swelling began to show.

Bang! -up-time was what I had at X-mas party for my job.
Ouch! ! was what I said next morning....as my brain did throb.

BANG! is a Theory of how our Universe came about.
OUCH! ! is Religion’s response....when its beliefs are placed in doubt.

It’s likely none of THOSE bangs will cause you to drop dead,
but dead you might soon be....if a gun goes BANG! beside your head.
