Say Bazonka every day
That's what my grandma used to say
It keeps at bay the Asian Flu'
And both your elbows free from glue.
So say Bazonka every day
(That's what my grandma used to say)

Don't say it if your socks are dry!
Or when the sun is in your eye!
Never say it in the dark
(The word you see emits a spark)
Only say it in the day
(That's what my grandma used to say)

Young Tiny Tim took her advice
He said it once, he said it twice
he said it till the day he died
And even after that he tried
To say Bazonka! every day
Just like my grandma used to say.

Now folks around declare it's true
That every night at half past two
If you'll stand upon your head
And shout Bazonka! from your bed
You'll hear the word as clear as day
Just like my grandma used to say!

Nice poem...divine vision...10 I saw many creatures They certainly secured Their position with devotedness The dog represented faithfulness I put aside pen and canvass It was personal loss Many sages said The power is within Feel easy breath and win with the vision
Simply superb poem with humor out of fantasy. A great entertainer too. Thanks for sharing it here.
Great poem A comic genius sadly missed By the way people the guys dead so asking him to read poems or thanking him unless you have a private line to heaven is impossible
