This is the hugging generation. Enjoy!


 

A hug is as snug
As a bug in a rug;
So don't be too smug
To relish a hug.
A thug in the jug,
A slug or a pug,
Can profit from learning
 the pleasures of hug.
 
Hugging beats chugging
 or lugging or tugging;
And although it's addictive
 like glugging or drugging,
It's good for your psyche,
 it's worthy of plugging.
 
A slugger or rugger
 can make a good hugger;
Or even a shrugger,
 but never a mugger.
 
So throw out your drugs,
Abolish your shrugs,
Put smiles on your mugs
And exult in your hugs!

Alan Cook, Mystery and Walking Writer
