Dumb Poem # 37 - Skiing
The first and last time I went skiing, I raced down a snowy hill, whereupon the ski hit a buried stump. Guess who did not go skiing after that. My friend, Al Kaeppel, who made this cartoon for me, never did explain to me how the guy got around that tree in the background.
"Skiing is the sport for me.
My skis are new, as you can see.
Powder snow is on the hills.
Here I go to get some thrills."
"Skiing lessons are for kids.
(These slopes are not the pyramids!)
I'll just keep my two knees tight.
(The book I read said that way's right.)"
"Hey! Skis go faster than I thought.
(I wonder what I've really bought???)
That ski book author was a clown.
He never mentioned UPSIDE-DOWN!"
"Yes, skiing is the sport for me
when followed up with surgery,
then ten weeks in full-body cast!
(I wonder if the snow will last???)"
