And I won’t eat it in a boat!
And I won’t feed it to a goat...
And I would pour it down the drain.
If I had my own domain.
Not in a car. Nor in a tree.
It tastes like crap or can’t you see!

So I will eat it buy some docks.
And I will feed it to a fox.
If only I still had a house.
I could feed it to my spouse.
I do not take Medicare.
It is Socialism I don’t dare.

I do so like spam in a can!
Thank you!
Thank you,
Poor-I-am
