Practical jokes are foolishly dangerous


The Practical Joker


By Elton Camp


Joe, by a paving contractor, was employed

Practical jokes were what he most enjoyed


When an extra pair of boots he spied

Another of his inane tricks he tried


With paving he covered the tops well

And then with panic Joe began to yell


“Somebody help!” is what he cried

“It looks like a workman has died!”


“His poor body I have just located.

With paving he’s been suffocated!”


The foreman ran from the construction shack

At the horrible sight he was taken aback


He suddenly said, “I don’t feel very well.”

Clutching his chest, to his knees he fell


This was the last practical joke Joe tried

Due to his stupidity, the foreman died


Proverbs 26: 18, 19 – “As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows and death, So is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?”

Thanks for reading. I didn't get any reads on my most recent posts and was wondering if they were showing up. Elton
