The Man Who Could Not Say "M"

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Mr. Principles

Mr. Principles

Mr. Principles lived in a pink house along the prairie

He owned hundreds of cows which made him dairy

He loved the letter P but could not pronounce the letter M

So he replaced M with a P instead

When he spoke to folks it was like a puzzle coming from his lips

As when he saw the beautiful ladies, instead of hello Miss, he said hello Piss

Many women became upset and told their husbands of the ordeal

Of how Mr. Principles referred to them as Piss and how bad they feel

The husbands marched down to the home of the accuser and saw a big P at the gate

"This man is insane!" they shouted. He surely deserves his fate.

"Come out Mr. Principles, come out and clear your name."

Then his P shaped door opened silently and then he said it again.

Good day gentle'p'en, Is there so'p'ething you wish?

Lovey 'p'orning also to all you Pisses.


The men began to get wild up and many wanted to clobber Mr. Principles

Because he called their Misses Pisses and this was a disrespect to the decent citizens

Two men ran up to his door and grabbed him by the arm and he was mistakenly tickled

Mr. Principles began to chuckle and made plenty giggles

"What is so funny Principles, we are here to give you a beat down."

"Because you called our Misses Pisses and take us men for clowns"

Oh no gentle'p'en, you see I have a proble'p' when pronouncing the letter ("he gestures')

But I love to say P so i substitute it for that letter instead

I condone no har'p', why not squash this, how about so'p'e whine and bread?.

The men looked at the women, the women looked at the men and they all burst out with laughter

Silly Mr Principles made a mess of the alphabet which nearly caused a disaster

The men held their wives hand and everyone strolled away

"Goodbye Sirs, Goodbye Pisses." Mr Principles shouted. "See you another day!"
