Poetry at Morback House


Sherwood Poet Larry Ernster (left) reads while fellow Elks listen.

I WENT TO SHERWOOD
AND I WALKED AROUND THE BLOCK
AND I LOOKED INTO THE WINDOW
OF THE LOCAL BARBER SHOP

THE BARBER SHOP WAS TINY
AND THE LIGHT WAS KINDA PALE
THERE WAS JUST A SINGLE CHAIR THERE
AND THE BARBER'S NAME WAS DALE

I ASKED HIM IF HE HAD THE TIME
TO CUT MY SHAGGY HAIR
HE SAID HE WASN'T BUSY
SO I HOPPED UP IN THE CHAIR

HE CHECKED MY HAIR AND WHISKERS
AND HE SAID "SIR IF YOU PLEASE,
I CANNOT CUT YOUR HAIR
BECAUSE YOUR HAIR IS FULL OF FLEAS!"
