Poems: You Probably Won’t Ever Find This In An Anthology, But…

Oh. My. Goodness. I was going through some of my grandfather’s things this weekend and found a letter written on the back of a typed poem. The letter was dated in 1945 while my grandfather was still serving in the Army, but when I started reading the poem I bust out laughing. For some reason my grandpa held onto this for more than fifty years! WTH?! 😀

Just, um, as a warning, the poem isn’t explicit, but it’s implicitly explicit… FYI for my few younger readers and those who don’t care for such things. 
Hope you’re as amused by this as I was!

Book of the Month – Author Unknown
Suzzanne was a lady
with plenty of class
who knocked them all dead
when she wiggled her
Eyes at the fellows
as girls sometimes do
to make it quite plain
that she wanted to
Take in a movie
or go for a sail
and hurry home
for a piece of
Cake or ice cream
And a slice of roast duck
and after each meal 
she was ready to
Go for a ride
or a stroll on the dock
with any young man
with a sizable
Roll of big bills
and a pretty big front
and if he talked fast
she would show him her
Little pet dog
who was subject to fits
and maybe she’d let him
take hold of her
Little white hands
with a movement so quick
why she’d reach right out
and tickle his
Chin while she showed him
a trick learned in France
and asked the poor fellow
to take off his
Coat while she sang
off the Mandalay shore
for whatever she was
Suzanne was a bore.

    It really does! Especially since I didn't know my grandfather well before he died a few years ago. For most of my life he lived on the other side of the country. This was such a rare find and all the more memorable because of it. 🙂

    Hahaha, I see what he did there. ^_~

    I think I've seen this type of poem somewhere before, but I can't put my finger on where… still hilarious. 😀
