This post comes in the form of "Half-time." We have thus reached the end of Round 1 of Papa's Poem Corner. We have officially caught up. The poems of Round 2 will be posted weekly. I invite all of you to check back in regularly for the greatest adventure of your lives.
I received a little message from my Uncle Terry (great guy). (He really exists by the way. Not like my Uncle Loiue.) I was touched by it, so I figured I'd pass it on. I quote him thus:
"With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person which almost went unnoticed last week. Larry La Prise, the man who wrote "The Hokey Pokey," died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.
They put his left leg in.
And then the trouble started...."
