THE ORIGINAL “CURIOUS ABNER”

THE ORIGINAL “CURIOUS ABNER”
Abner and the psychedelic Toad
are not yet on speaking terms.

 

Curious Abner licked a toad;

At least he thought it so.

For a moment or so it looked like a toad,

From head to warty toe.

“However”, said he, “I’m not so sure” for time now seemed to slow.

“Whatever it is that I did lick, I’m not sure that I know”

He pondered a moment and then “Aha, perhaps it was a stool,

Upon which sat a warty toad and made me such a fool.”

“ ‘Twas the shape” said he, “of which I’m not

so sure I’ll ever know.”

“But lick I did and shape be damned, I think its time to go”

(And fraught with a frustration due to a lack of fresh ideas, Abner pulled out his meetin’ book and ran his finger down the pages as he rehearsed for a moment.) “My name is Abner, a recovering orphan of the Big Hazy……………………”

 

 

CURIOUS ABNER’S CON

CURIOUS ABNER’S CON

 

Curious Abner thought awhile,

(A while is all he had.)

The moment seemed to last forever,

(Forever’s not so bad.)

After all, thought Curio,

It only takes an instant

To contemplate creation,

How far is near or distant?

(To contemplate or “complicate”.)

He wondered with a grin

Content and yes, quite satisfied

With this intellectual spin.

While rolling in the aisle.

Curious Abner thought awhile.

(A while is all he had.)

( A while is not so bad.)
