Do You Sense What I Sense?

Said the husband as she burnt the ham
Do you smell what I smell?
(Do you smell what I smell?)
It’s charred, it’s charred; the oven’s all alight
With the men here to fi’re fight
With the men, here, to fi’re fight.

Said the slow man to his pride and joy
Do you taste what I taste?
(Do you taste what I taste?)
A smoke, a musk making us both wheeze
With eyes red and nose set to sneeze.
With eyes red, and nose set to sneeze.

Said the man to whom he’d vowed to cling
Do you feel what I feel?
(Do you feel what I feel?)
A fire, a fire burns the whole household
Let us run out; stop, drop, and roll
Let us run out; stop, drop, and roll.

Said the firechief to neighbors, stopped to stare
Listen to what I shout!
(Listen to what I shout!)
The man, his wife really aren’t that bright
They thought smoked ham needs firelight
Now, their house is qu-ite the sight!

And to ah-all, have a good night!

    Now that is a terrible turn of events! Sounds like they will be ordering ham and pineapple pizza for Christmas dinner.

    Even if it is an oven fired pizza, it shouldn’t have pineapple. That’s just wrong on so many levels.
    Wonderful ditty, Chel. Made me smile each time I read it.

      πŸ˜€ Oh, good. It got a little shaky toward the end as I was exhaustedly trying to tie it up.

      And, I am one of those blasphemous people who loves pineapple on pizza.

          I keep getting spammed by two sites that just re-blog re-blog re-blog and it bugs me. They’re clearly not legitimate blogs.

    Very nicely done, Chelsea. What a hoot. You got a lol from me on “Let us run out; stop, drop, and roll.” It fit perfectly. The contest was a lot of fun. Thanks!
