“I’ll try anything once”

“I’ll try anything once”

Is a dumb thing to say

Unless with great agony

You are okay.

Would you lick a jellyfish,

Sword fight with a shark

Or leave a mean youtube comment

About Raiders of the Lost Ark?

Would you drink from the gutter

Or go surfing in Maine?

Would you call someone Mexican

If you know they’re from Spain?

Would you go see “The Notebook”

Starring Jackie Chan?

Stick your head in the oven

And hope to get tan?

I hope my point’s proven

But if you still say “Yes”

Then try liking this poem

And go learn to play chess.
