GULF – GUST

A ship from the Persian Gulf area
Was in the Black Sea near Bulgaria,
When a gust from the East
Arrived like a beast,
Infecting the crew with malaria.

A vicious fictitious old whale
Ordered "Fetch me some fish in a pail!
Or else, why then I'll"
(Added he with a smile)
"Whup you upside the head with my tail!"

The pickerel, peacock and pony,
Invertebrate creatures and bony,
All sprang from mutation,
Not godly creation -
To talk of 'design' is baloney.

On hearing a forecast of gales,
The crew had to take down the sails
To safeguard the ship,
Lest the sailcloth should rip
And lure hungry sharks or blue whales.

By nature, some men are aggressive;
Their wives find them fiercely possessive.
If someone says 'Yea',
They are apt to shout 'Nay!'
Or phrases more plainly expressive.

The cream to be stored in a cruet
Was so cramped by the crocks full of suet
That when more room was needed
(Shelf space was exceeded)
We wondered just how they would do it!

I dreamed of a tortoise so fleet
That it chased a large dog down the street.
Along came a dragon
Which drank from a flagon,
Then swallowed my pet parakeet.

Don't know whether you know about the OEDILF...

This AP bulletin was published in many papers today. Must be a slow news day.

DESOLATE - DETACH

If you live on a desolate plain,
Assailed by tempestuous rain,
The wind may detach
A roof made of thatch,
But a flat concrete one will remain.
