Peter Strasheim's Younger Brother

Peter Strasheim’s younger brother
Came to my house just the other
Day and asked me if he could de-
Pend on me to go on Sunday
To a picnic held in honor
Of his cousin, Jacob Bonner.

“Well,” I said, “I wish I could,
But I’ve a date with Brenda Wood,
We’re going to the skating rink
And then, perhaps, or so I think,
To dinner at the local Denny’s
Or that place that’s next to Penneys
In the mall.”
                       And so it was
That I missed meeting Peter’s cuz.
