    Do you know who wrote this poem??

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Wreybies, Sep 21, 2008.

    Please, help me get this poem out of my head by helping me find the rest of it. I am sure it was written by Shel Silverstein and I can only remember the beginning part:

    Goodness gracious sakes alive.
    Mother said come home at five,
    And now the clock is striking six
    And I am in a terrible fix!

    Did I hallucinate this poem in my youth? :confused: I cannot find anything on the web. Yes, I have Googled the ba-jinkies out of it.

    HELP!!

    Why do things like that stick in our hard drives?

    As soon as I got that little ditty out of my head, in popped another one. Thankfully, the internet was more forthcoming this time...

    Oh, Senor Don Gato was a cat,
    On a high red roof Don Gato sat,
    he went there to read a letter
    meow, meow, meow,
    where the reading light was better
    meow, meow, meow.
    'Twas a love note for Don Gato!
    :D
