Elvis Andrus’ New Tattoo

by James Finn Garner

Elvis Andrus’ new tattoo
Made his arm go loop-de-loo.
Th’ inked portrait of his paw
Left his arm and bicep raw.

‘Pon returning from the dead,
Once he’d slapped him up the head,
Emilio, his dad, would say,
“Cut this crap — go out and play!”

    Sad Dad

    Before you go and get that ink
    Take it slow and stop to think
    Your tattooed kin could be a drag
    When aging skin starts in to sag
    As you grow old, not in the pink
    Emilio will drop and sink.
