Old Cartoons

My Looney Tunes

my powerhouse

my woman’s a two face

            at the Broken Arms Hotel.

 

After opening many doors

the mouse dances with

a skeleton spider

 

Tex and Quimby Hound

the hound – no sleep

California Sunshine Boys are

Storming,

Strangle that bitch of a phone

In the morning forget the hunt

it is better to sleep.

 

The sign says

“Cobweb Hotel

            for flies only”

 

I think I’ll go fish like a bear.
