Who can “plat a part”
like a piece of land
does it take a trained surveyor
to perform a task so grand?

And if he has to “plat a part”
Of what is that plat a part?
Oh well, guess I leave this alone
and go outside and… dispense some internal gas

Author’s Note: Written as a response to a message in the IWVPA Club in which the writer made a typographical error, writing “plat a part” rather than “play a part”
