NAVIGATE – NEAPOLITAN

A great Neapolitan brig
Sailed forth from the bay in full rig
To navigate oceans
By vigorous motions
With sails that were suitably big.

A slender young sailor ran past
And shinned up a slippery mast.
I said to the skipper:
"When I was a nipper,
I used to move equally fast!"

A hiker from Hawick cried: "Och!
No monsters inhabit this loch!"
A logger called Hermann,
Who spoke only German,
Replied with great emphasis: "Doch!"*

* "Oh yes they do!"

Suppose that you chance to mislay
Your phone as you go on your way.
If God intervenes
By miraculous means,
You'll find it again the next day.

Two enemies met near a ridge
And clashed on a rickety bridge.
One earned his survival
By killing his rival
And storing the corpse in a fridge.

I sat where the blossom is pretty
In a large verdant park in the city.
But a bluebottle fly
Approached very nigh,
Distracting me, which was a pity.

On a dark temple roof, an old lama
Surveyed the austere panorama.
A lamplighter came
And lit a dim flame.
It wasn't the stuff of high drama.

The texture of snow tends to vary;
At first it is soft, light and airy.
A thaw turns it slushy,
Then rain makes it mushy.
But if it refreezes, be wary!

In the reign of King Edward the First,
One village near London was cursed
By a duo of knights
Who threatened poor wights
And bade them engage if they durst.

There was a devout gondolier,
Determined that tourists should hear
A chapter or two
Of the gospels he knew.
His English was faulty, but clear.
