Smelly Kelly


After slathering

An embrocation

Those near him

Almost died of suffocation

For the liniment

Was terribly strong

The putrid smell

Was fiercely wrong

Yet the poor lad

Had no other choice

And in a very soft

Spoken voice

He said I’m sorry

For the way I reek

I didn’t mean to cause

Such a foul stink
