My Daddy Says
by tommy kirchhoff
Fat Hank Fwetcher bought some wand

he gweeded for all the deeds were phwasing.
Hank humped the quarries in legal sqwimmage
and gwazed his cows in his own image.
The owners said “This is our wand!”
“Wead your deed” said the big, fat man.

to teach a wesson to the fat man
in to Hank’s house, a posse cwept
and sacked up Hank while he fat slept

and to a stake the wope was cleat;
the owners said,
