Yellow Brick Road


Don’t let the puritans fool you,

there is nothing wrong

with setting out a yellow Slip ‘N Slide

in the backyard

and paying a hooker to dress up

in a blue and white checkered dress

so you can call her “Dorothy”

and make her walk back and forth

down the yellow brick road for

the entire hour.
