WHAT’S SO FUNNY?
The sun shone on the Med,
Twas shining with all its might.
The sea was wet as wet can be.
Rusty-Drain and Pinky walked hand in hand,
Shuffling through quantities of violet sand.
“If only it were cleared away,” said Pinky. “Wouldn’t it be grand?”
“The time has come,” said red-nosed Rusty,
“To speak of many things:
Of poems—purple pygmies—and joy buzzers—
Of snake-proof boots and strings—
And why the Arkansas is boiling hot—
And whether pachyderms have wings.”
“O Rusty-dear,” whined Pinky, shedding bitter tears.
“We’ve had a pleasant run
“Alas, wee whoopee cushion have I none.”
