NARROW BOATS ON MY MIND

NARROW BOATS ON MY MIND

I dream of a working canal,

Which is for some banal…

Steering long boats

Around castle moats,

If I could, I would…and shall!

An English canal is “el neato,”

To lay on the deck in a Speedo ( ! )…

And write what happens

In a warm cabin,

Limericks being my credo.

I’d love to work a lock,

With bikini-ed babes along the walk…

But since I’m fat

I’d settle for a cat,

If it didn’t try to water-walk.

Alas, it’s too much money

Traveling to England, Honey…

So sit back and dream

Eating ice cream,

Watching English TV that’s funny.
