The Professor's Goat by DragonSkulls
    Poetry Telling A Joke Contest Winner 

On a poorly lit back road,
a few blocks from Parliament,
a professor and his he-goat walk in a bar
to join the assembly of nameless patrons.
Everyone stops and cruelly stares at the duo.
Then Daniel, the bartender,
rudely and loudly hollers out the question,
"Why did you bring that smelly,
hairy, disgusting beast in here?"
The goat yells back,
"Hey, that is an awfully mean
and hurtful thing to say...
he's my father."
