THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES
We lived next door to a family of 4
The Churlies The mother had dimples
everywhere in kitten heels by 8 a.m.
The dog was hit by the Canada Post truck
My father predicted this stroke of bad luck
The daughters were look-alikes & prone to
tears One day the father a beefy&arrogant
man went down on one knee in front of me
He said: I wish my daughters would read a book
It seemed too late the dye was cast It would be
swimming pools & movie stars for the Churlie girls
In their dreams mostly in their dreams
Granny: Elly May! Don’t spit from a moving vehicle.
Wait till it’s stopped.
(Beverly Hillbillies 1962-1971)
