I Got Flocked
I poured my morning coffee and stepped out to get the newspaper. This is my typical gearing up for work routine. It appears I'm on the wrong end of a prankster's caper. So I'll describe what I saw in this half awake scene.
There's pink flamingos on my lawn. It's St. Patty's day so it must've been Leprechauns. There's a note attached to the tall one. I blinked my eyes to make sure I wasn't dreamin' ( yep 20 plastic flamingos starin' back at me). The note said you're being held for ransom. Your lawn has been seized rightly handsome. If you want them gone just write a check. I began to ponder who might be the guilty son of a suspect ( I think I know the dirty culprit).
Yes I got flocked, I'm the only one on the block. I need them removed before I'm mocked. Yes I've been flocked, I'm standing here in my socks. I need them gone they're making me distraught. I got flocked.
Not being a real friendly sporting type of fellow. I wondered how long it would take before I mellowed. The note demanded money for a good cause. I decided to pay then put them on my neighbor's lawn (He needs a good flocking). All jokin' aside, we need to fight cancer. I'll gladly give some cash to help find the answer. We've all been touched by the big "C" in our life. Plus I get to prank my neighbor and his garrulous wife (Ha completely worth the price).
Yes he got flocked, he's not the only ones on the block. He needs them removed before he's mocked. Yes he's been flocked, standing there in his socks. He'll need them gone before he gets distraught. He got flocked (I think I'll get out of sight before I get caught).
Yes we got flocked, we're not the only one on the block. We need them removed before we're mocked. Yes we've been flocked, standing there in our socks. We'll need them gone before we get distraught. We got flocked (Everyone needs a good flockin' now and then) (He he that made going to work a little easier) We got flocked!

I wrote this for our local Relay For Life fund raiser. Cancer is a terrible disease that will one day be completely curable but funding is needed to do that. There's a nation wide fundraiser called Relay For Life. One of the ways that funds are raised is to have 20 plastic pink flamingos show up on your lawn in the middle of the night with a ransom note asking for a donation to have them removed. You donate some money and then send them on to the next victim err....person. The process is repeated which raises money for the good cause. This is my true, humorous depiction, of what happened to me.
