Many years ago, my Dad received a birthday card from one of his siblings and I thought it was funny enough to write down the poem and save it. I found it a few days ago, since I’ve been going through clutter, and I thought I’d share. I hope you get a kick out of it. We thought it was hilarious, but then again all of my family has been blessed with an odd sense of humor. So, who knows if anyone else will think it’s funny!













A fart can be quiet
A fart can be loud
Some leave a powerful
poisonous cloud

A fart can be short
A fart can be long
Some farts have been known
to sound just like a song

A fart can create
a most curious medley
A fart can be harmless
or silent but deadly

A fart might not smell
while others are vile
A fart may pass quickly
or linger a while

A fart can occur
in a number of places
and leave everyone
with strange looks
on their faces

From wide-open prairie
to small elevator
A fart will find all of us
sooner or later

But not all farts are bad
this is simply not true
We mustn’t forget
dear sweet old farts like you!

PS  As I was about to hit ‘publish’ I heard Dad in the other room rip off a good one! Old farts are the best…
