Nook and Cranny

 

An original poem by Chrome Dome Mike Kimbro

 

Please read along to my Spoken Verse Performance.

 

 

VERSE 1

 

In my nursery, I was bored.

 

So I slipped right past my nanny.

 

After all the house had been explored,

 

She finally caught up to me,

 

I got the spanking due me,

 

Looking for a Nook and Cranny.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Don't let the whining of others,

 

Keep you from the world's wonders.

 

No matter what they say,

 

You should continue to survey.

 

Until you find a Nook and Cranny.

 

 

VERSE 2

 

As a teen, I had trouble with my car.

 

It was either the engine or tranny,

 

But even then I followed a star.

 

 

Bought a ticket at the bus station,

 

Took a junket across this great nation,

 

Still looking for a Nook and Cranny.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Don't let the whining of others,

 

Keep you from the world's wonders.

 

No matter what they say,

 

You should continue to survey.

 

Until you find a Nook and Cranny.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

Wanderlust ain't behind every jaunt.

 

Cause I've got purpose in every stroll.

 

There's never a doubt about what I want.

 

I've been to Maui and Tombstone,

 

New Orleans and then some.

 

A Nook and Cranny remains the goal.

 

 

CHORUS

 

Don't let the whining of others,

 

Keep you from the world's wonders.

 

No matter what they say,

 

You should continue to survey.

 

Until you find a Nook and Cranny.

 

 

The End.
