Life tossed me some lemons today
I did not know what to do with them
There was no sugar or water
So lemonade ideas were at an end
So what now, I thought
Looking at these sour football shapes
How about creating a battery?
Saving money would be great
Not much other use for these lemons
I couldn’t Houdini them into new eyes
Like the one time I tried with the 8-Ball
Now, wouldn’t that be a surprise?!
I was just thinking about the Flint, Michigan water problem, that has made headline news, with even Jimmy Fallon donating 10,000 dollars to help fix it. Maybe these lemons could magically give Flint a brand new state-of-the-art water system? I feel bad for those that have gotten sick from lead poisoning and hope that this gets taken care of ASAP.
When life gives you lemons… make something else. Tell us about a time you used an object or resolved a tricky situation in an unorthodox way.
