PAD Day 10 - How---

How Now Brown Cow

I heard this as a kid
Not sure where it started
No clue of when.
Just there all my life.
HOW now BROWN cow?
When someone kept asking questions.
Usually me or my little brother
Questions that my folks got tired of listening to, or answering.
HOW now brown cow?
When I couldn’t think of anything to say but knew there was something else.
I just couldn’t remember.
And always, in my head
Was that chocolate brown cow.
She made chocolate milk.
She was the answer to stupid comments.
Like brown cows don’t make chocolate milk.
How NOW brown cow?
When someone yammers on and on-
HOW NOW brown cow.
Only it’s in my head, no point in saying that out loud.
