I CLIMBED MY FAMILY TREE
By: Author Unknown
I climbed my family tree and found,
it wasn't worth the climb.
So I scrambled down convinced
it was a waste of time.
Some branches of my tree I found,
were rotton to the core,
And all the tree was full of sap,
and hung with nuts galore,
I used to brag of my kinfold,
before I made the climb.
But truth compels me not to tell,
of those not worth a dime.
And beg my friends who boast aloud,
of their ancestors great.
To climb their family tree and learn
of those who weren't so "straight".
I learned what family trees are like,
and I scrambled down.
They are like at tater-vine,
'cause the best are underground
