A Bottle of Rum

I once knew a man who could stand on one hand.
I once knew a lady she was from far off Haiti.
I once knew a little boy who broke his toy.
I once knew a little girl whose hair was all in curls.
I once knew a little dog that craoked like a tiny frog.
I once knew a big fat cat who just sat and sat.
I once knew a song that said; Don't do me wrong.
I once knew a friend who sang like a wren.
I once knew a place where everyone knew my face.
I once knew this poem was dumb, but hey! That was
before I drank this whole damn bottle of rum.
