Out of Control
 
 


by Bruce Lansky
 
   

“The president will come to town…”
“The price of beans is coming down…”

“I’ll love you till the end of time…”
“But shooting ducks should be a crime…”

“We’ve never had a better sale…”
“We’ll have to break them out of jail…”

“The Pope arrived to lead the prayers…”
“The Dallas Cowboys beat the Bears…”

“The temperature is three below…”
“These vitamins will help you grow…”

What’s going on? Well, bless my soul!
Baby’s got the remote control.
