What's Behind Our Door? You're Nosy!

by Ogden

(Do you ever get sarcastic when asked annoying questions?)

What's Behind Our Door? You're Too Nosy!

An umbrella stand's
what's behind the door.
We're so glad it is
when we see it pour.

Yes, it is handy
just in case it rains.
(We sometimes need it
living in White Plains.)

There'd be a pair of shovels,
If we lived in Buffalo;
We'd always have to use them,
though we hate the goddam snow. 

And if it was Las Vegas,
we'd hang a change of clothes;
Arriving home butt naked,
we'd go right back dressed in those.

Next time someone wants to know
what we keep behind our door,
We'll tell him, "Mind your business,
You are what a door is for!"
