by Quentin S Clingerman

The teetotaler tattled on the totally teed

Sent his wife (the teed's) in a spin

The teed knew he couldn't win

The teetotaler laughed and laughed

When the teed tried to explain with his sheepish grin

It didn't work however as anyone could see

The knot on his head explained

His wife's use of the rolling pin

Tattler (c)2002 Quentin Clingerman

Author's Note: Inspired by Charles Minshall's poem "alcohol". :)
