By: Wayne Brown

Can you run through the jungle in your birthday suit?

Without catching your privates on a thorn or a root

Can you swim in the ocean stark naked in the dark,

Without getting a sex change from a lurking white shark?

Can you do cartwheels naked and walk upon your hands,

While you play bass guitar in a three-piece band?

Can you walk totally naked upon the high,high wire?

While juggling sharp swords and swallowing fire?

Do you dream about running around without a stitch?

Do clothes just weigh down your body; constantly itch?

Do have the desire to just throw off all the cotton chains

And go running down the road naked in the rain?

Do all these things keep running around in your mind?

Beggin’ you to jump the fold and get naked anytime?

Though God never made you in the image of a Buddhist

Dr.Freud might say that you are a borderline nudist!

Have you ever wanted to go naked for weeks and weeks?

Or go down the street just a showin’ your lily white cheeks?

Have you ever thought of giving up and becoming a freak?

Running naked in the post office; just a blazing whte streak

Does the desire overwhelm you to run naked at a trot?

Showing all the public most everything you’ve got?

Do you have that burning urge to just go au natural?

And sprint across the food court naked in the mall?

Roger Miller said that you can’t skate in a buffalo herd

But runnin’ round naked? Why he never wrote a word

So maybe there’s a message there for all of us who listen

To oil up that ol’ body and let the naked skin glisten!

Elvis would have loved if he could have rock n rolled nude

Probably would have liked it better than his mama’s food

But he didn’t have the contract to let it hang out on the stage

And Colonel Parker knew it would put all the girls into a rage

Albert Einstein might have tried it in the scientific sense

Naked as a bird while he performed his lab experiments

Exposed there in his naked history for the entire world to see

It just might have helped to shape his theory of relativity

The Beatles could have tried it while they sang all their songs

Sitting around with Ravi Shankar and sucking on a bong

How do we know they didn’t do it while riding on their bus?

Or writing one of those funky songs like ‘I Am the Walrus”?

Could you just imagine how history might have been changed?

If folks had shaped it naked not thinking that it was strange

Washington would have crossed the Potomac just a bit withdrawn

Totally naked in the front of the boat urging his men along

If the world has gone in that direction there’d be no nudist retreats

We’d all be walking buck naked up and down the city streets

Never thinking a thing about it, some natural or with a creative shave

Totally devoid of our clothes but look at the money we would save!

      Too terrifying a visual to contemplate for myself, but, lol in general! Speaking of which, did you know that there is a General Butt Naked? lol. When I saw the title of this, I actually thought maybe he'd died or something (and it has been a while since I read about him, so I'd forgotten if it was General, colonel, or captain butt naked lol).

      You nailed it with Einstein's photo, Wayne. He was a genius who understood the power of humor in our lives. And so do you. Rated up.

      Loved Joe Cocker, too.

      if i thought of running

      naked down the street

      the first thing to happen

      my wife would me surely beat

      the very next second then

      would be another loss

      the macho image i've made

      would go for a big toss

      rating in the neigbouring wives

      would surely rapidly fall

      "aha we thought he was bigger

      but then is THIS it all"

      You just keep knocking yourself up a notch my friend with your fabulous contemporary poetry, I love it. I am sharing this with all my friends on FB, Stumble, Redditt, Twitter, Digg and my own personal email contacts.

      This is too good not to share with the world. I am laughing my ass off here and keeping my Hat on, but of course hiding my privates with it. he he he..running around naked as a Jay bird, they will have to call me the "Bare Naked Poet" lol

      rated all the way UP and not where the sunshine don shine in....he he he...pressed all your buttons...

      This is very funny!! It makes me think of the Shrinkage/Hamptons Seinfeld episode:

      Jerry: Do women know about shrinkage?

      Elaine: What do you mean like laundry?

      Jerry: No, like when a man goes swimming afterwards.

      Elaine: It shrinks?

      Jerry: Like a frightened turtle!

      Elaine: Why does it shrink?

      George Costanza: It just does.

      Elaine: I don't know how you guys walk around with those things.

      Ya, think about the money we would have saved... and not to be in fashion at any price... On the other hand, there is a word for people who have the desire to be nudists. Even in ‘ancient’ Africa, where weather conditions actually promoted nudism, people (adults) had the instinctive desire/urge to cover (at least) their reproductive organ. Maybe this was to ensure the survival of the human race? (lol!). Philosophizing in rhyme can only be done successful by Wayne Brown. Voted UP and awesome.

      My husband looked at me just yesterday and asked if I wanted to go get something to eat. I said sure, just take me a minute, go get dressed. He was birthday suiting it. He said I am ready, lets go. I laughed and said he didn't walk fast enough, the police would be here before he made it to the van. They are notoriously slow to respond here. He got dressed.

      WB - would ya believe - yes I actually have wondered what would happen if I ran down the street naked. I decided somebody would end up giving me another coat with the buckles in the back?

      I clicked on this with my son and daughter in the room

      and was laughing so hard they came to take a peek.

      They read and started laughing with terrible mirth.

      Soon they left to go tell their dad,

      that mom was reading some wild guy in a streak.

      Now see what you have done, you terrible person,

      you have their mom writing some awful bad prose.
