As I was walking down the street a billboard caught my eye,
The advertisments written there would
Make you laugh and cry.
The sign was torn and tattered from
The storm the night before,
And as I read the things it said
This is what I saw:
"Smoke Coca Cola cigarettes,
Drink Wrigley's spearmint beer,
Cattle ration dog food makes your wife's complextion clear.
Chocolate covered mothballs, they always satisfy,
Brush your teeth with lye soap,
And watch the suds go by."
As I recovered from my shock,
I went upon my way.
I'd gone no further than a block,
Then much to my dismay,
Another billboard caught my eye
Just like the one before
And as I read the things it said,
Well, this is what I saw:
"Take your next vacation in a brand new frigid air,
Learn to play the piano in your winter underwear,
Simonize your baby with a Hershey's candy bar,
Texaco Beauty cream is used by every star.
Doctors say that babies should smoke until they're three.
People over thirty-five take baths in Lipton tea.
Wow! This was a weird poem...
Author's Notes: Hmm... well... I don't really understand this poem. I would suspect it to be about old billboards on the side of the road I guess. My father and I wrote this when we were on a road trip. I hope you enjoy.
