Eat Some Beef, Throw a Stone

~~ ~~ 1 ~~ ~~
Eat some beef, throw a stone,
Carry hay, gnaw a bone;
Something good will soon appear—
Isn’t everything quite clear?
~~ ~~ 2 ~~ ~~
Apricots are turning ripe,
Whiskey’s in the water pipe,
Running cold and fast and free—
Will you have a drink with me?
~~ ~~ 3 ~~ ~~
Pipers piped and dancers danced,
Horses horsed and prancers pranced;
Sensors sensed that all was clear—
It was just that time of year.
~~ ~~ 4 ~~ ~~
Archaic is the padlock,
Archaic is the key,
Archaic is the gate post,
Archaic just like me!
~~ ~~ 5 ~~ ~~
Shoulders, fingers, knees and toes—
What’s that tattoo on your nose?
Why’s it there, for pity’s sake?
It looks like a rattlesnake!
