Spelling Emergency

Nine-one-one got the frantic call,
It came a tad before midnight.
His wife was having a baby
She was screaming with all her might.

They asked him for his street number
He said, “It’s four oh four oh five.”
They asked, “What’s the name of the street?”
He said, “It’s Eucalyptus Drive.”

The operator couldn’t hear,
She said, “You’ll have to spell it please.”
He said, “I don’t know how to spell it.
But it’s one of them stupid trees.”

“Since I don’t know how to spell it
Let’s find another place to meet.
If you can give me a minute,
I’ll tote her over to Post Oak Street.”
