Dying Art

Dying Art by James F. Higgins


             Dunkers,, ay.. we're dunkers..,
                  and not one ounce of shame
             Look past the common usage..,
                  past that round ball game
             Talkin' bout in liquid's..,
                  not flying cross the sky
             Cookie's.. cake's.. whatever..,
                  there's that Higgins high
             Now some may say.. that's impolite
                  other's cringe,, and frown
             They simply haven't tried it..,
                   so they put us down
             But just a dog gone minute..,
                   hold back on that call
             Are they not as guilty..,
                   lets just tell it all
             Dipping toast in those egg's..,
                   or gravy with a roll
             Soup.. and cracker's.. anything..,
                   in that pretty bowl
             Dunker's.. ay.. we're dunker's..,
                   and NOT one ounce of shame
             Six-foot at best,, and mighty proud..,
                   of our great claim to fame
