Electric Fences and Your Tongue (poetry)

Some things go together
And some things don’t:

Creamed corn and tennis shoes?
Applesauce and mayonnaise?
Chocolate pudding and lima beans?
Rabbit fur and axle grease?
Turtles and tire tracks?
Piano keys and my friend?
Leather and thumb tacks?
Green beans and light bulbs?
Brains and my cousin?
Splinters and teeth?
Cow manure and bare feet?
Chuck and up?
Sandpaper and bottoms?
Tartar sauce and jelly?
Root beer and refried beans?
Lemonade and sauerkraut?
Greasy hair and a hot date?
Electric fences and your tongue?
Marshmallows and microwave ovens?

Like I said,
Some things go together,
And some things don’t.
