Two Poems about 4th of July Picnics

At the Very First 4th of July Picnic
The host announced to those about to eat,
“BBQ is served. Don’t dally! Napkins
are in short supply. Latecomers will need
to use their petticoats and galligaskins!”

At the Two Hundredth 4th of July Picnic
The host couldn’t drink enough to slake
his thirst after so much Shake ’n Bake.
