A polite way to be crude.

I’ve decided I’m going to clean up my tongue
By using better words  ’specially near the young.
Like when I hit an icy patch slicker than glass
I’ll say, whoops, I dang near fell on my…donkey.

Then while I’m at it I’ll speak nicer, too
About nosy neighbors.  I’ve got one or two.
When they bellyache about the height of my grass
I’ll look at them and say, you kiss my…donkey.

Tonight at Margie’s I’ll sit on my stool
And gaze at the barmaid till I start to drool.
I’ll work up some courage and make a cool pass
And if I’m lucky I might get a piece of…donkey.
