Toons To Cough By
During my rest period as I coughed almost continuously,
I managed to still draw a few toons not so very vigorously.
But never the less, I managed to eke a few onto my old pad,
Probably giving each one of them the same thing that I had.
Toons To Cough By
“Bashful” is my first toon that was a shy dwarf I once knew,
When I watched the Disney movie “Snow White” on through,
This little dudes nose and cheeks stayed red most all of the time,
Even when working with his six buddies down in their own mine.
“Rocky” is a mean looking dude that occasionally did like to box,
Later on he made six boxing movies about his life as the Rock.
Each one of those fine movies he did make way back then,
Were very good as many movie awards were then given to him.
“Hoss” is a cowboy living on a ranch with family on a TV show,
Called “Bonanza” that most of us watched a long time ago.
Hoss was a big guy who could whip most any other ranch hand,
Who wore a hat that could surely hold 10 gallons up to its band.
“Dietzen” is a German SS officer of World War II kind of scared,
As the Allied forces are attacking beaches of Normandy there.
And he had just got a look at the size of the armies headed on in,
As it was D Day on June 6, 1944, as the new offensive did begin.
“Howard” is an old geezer that could have been my dear old Dad,
Not too long before he quit smoking that old nasty pipe he had.
I recall that Dad had to have a bad cancer cut off of his own lip,
And he quit smoking that pipe not too long after that bad trip.
“Tom Dooley” was a man condemned to death by neck hanging,
In a song I remember the Kingston Trio with harmony singing,
“Hang down your head Tom Dooley, hang down your head & cry,
Hang your head Tom Dooley, poor boy you’re bound to die.”
“Otis” was a soul singer back as I was growing up in my day
Who sang a cool song about “Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay”.
I loved the smooth style he sang that song and others in his day,
What fun living we had then with good music coming our way.
“Terry” is a kid that lived out there in Phillips, I did know,
That liked to hang with his legs over a limb swinging so slow.
The kid had long hair that always hung on down looking dumb.
As he hung there for hours looking at his own deformed thumb.
“Andy” is a hep college student I once saw on a movie so old,
Whose last name was Hardy as he played that cool Daddy O.
He was played by a Mickey with the last name of Rooney,
Making 43 movies between ages 15 & 25, some kind of looney.
“Jasper” is the fine chairman of the royal order of the Hawk,
Wearing the traditional Hawk headwear as he begins his talk.
Trying to convince potential new Hawks to join their own club,
That has perks including a trip after each meeting to the pub.
