John The Booster

By Eric Greinke

John arose from his booster-seat & went up to
the bar.   He ordered a booster-shot.   Then, he
went  shoplifting  in  a  jon-boat.   He  brought
some  johnny-cake  along  for  a  snack.    After
that,  John  went  home  &  watched  television
through  a  booster-cable.     A  show  about   a
robbery  gave  him  a  boost.    He  went  to the
john.  Still later, he hired a hooker.
