 Names are not real people

I Knew A Girl Named Martha 
I knew a girl named Martha 
We were friends in the city 
She, however, well, forget it
It is decently silly 

I Hung My Head (On A Very Dark Pail) 
I hung my head on a very dark pail
Not knowing what a pail was out there
I took a step toward the shower door 
And I am sorry but
I'll do that no more  

Grand Children Don't Make You Feel Old
Grand children don't make you feel old 
Grand children are simply solid gold 
They make you run when it is cold 
And eat too much so you get bloated 

Curiosity Kills 
Curiosity kills 
That is what I've heard 
Maybe to a cat 
And maybe to a bird
But to people who wish to know 
Curiosity is so 
welcoming and nice 
Curiosity is simply a way
to obtain some good advise
~G.David Schwarz
