My lad he's sharp and cool
On deadpan humour keen
And on my ex-wife's kitchen shelf
I spied a pot of cream.

Udder Cream the label said
A moisturiser pink
It keeps her skin from glowing red
Makes her younger so she thinks

A gag jumped unasked in my head
I didn't want to row
But William spoke my thoughts and said
Its stuff that's for a cow

Thank you both very much Alice and Christina. I'm very pleased you enjoyed it. This is my only 'pome'. Everything else is prose. Thanks again for comenting.

like The Walrus said, this has an excellent structure- y'lend y'self to poetry, methinks. I think rhyming poetry is great, especially when it works, no contrived rhymes or anything. Anyways, I thought it was fun!
