Borlap and Gorlap

Borlap and Gorlap

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Borlap and Gorlap lived in the deep wood

Above tallest trees, both of them stood

In spite of looking far over field and valley

They had decided to open a bowling alley


Financing became their first concern

With neither having money to burn

Both thought it would be cool and groovy

To make money starring in a movie


In Hollywood they became huge stars

Drinkin wine and smoking cigars

Bowling hall dreams faded from sight

As they partied, night after night


However, things happen, who’d ever think

Wine and cigars made them both shrink

As far as popularity was concerned

Too soon, another page had been turned


Both being stunned with the real fright

Of nearly shrinking right out of sight

And with neither one needing a push

Gave up loose livin, went back to the bush


Now breathin fresh air and enjoyin the life

Both are recovering from loose livin strife

Although, still nowhere near as tall

At least, neither has as far to fall

This is like watching a jungle version of tweetle dee and tweetle dumb. This gave me a laugh for the day.

nuthin works as good as a laugh
a couple of pinheads. i guess they threw gutterballs. i heard through the grapevine that they had another "silent" partner named 'Overlap' who slipped and fell when they were waxing the lanes. i really enjoyed this and was held from start to finish - the beginning really got the ball rolling before the spinning curveball. clever, creative tale and ending with a lesson for all ... :)
