In the Year 2013
‘Tis said someday we will not kiss,
that no longer we’ll know the bliss;
for kissing is the cause of lots of disease.
In old books they’ll read about it,
they’ll find it used to make a hit,
but all will say “stand back there, please.”
A few daring ones will, perhaps,
get wise and don their thinking caps;
and they’ll wish there wasn’t such a law at all.
But it won’t matter what they say,
if they did they’d sure have to pay,
they’d find a poor excuse a mighty bum stall.
