Three Men in a Boat--Don't Exit -Take My Vote

                          This lovely book--- 'Three Men in a Boat'
                          A travel account- quite amusing to note
                          While on the waters- it smoothly did float 
                          But its story wavers- with each anecdote 
                          The reader's views- I would like to quote
                          Many contents have their links- so remote

                     Jerome , George and Harris- as their real names
                     They suffered from diseases- as each one claims
                     Busy with their laziness - seldom playing games
                     Finally they planned - an excursion upon Thames
                     The narration is all dragging-still nobody blames
                     Describing places and kings- damsels and dames
                    Tour was decided- with agreement and adamancy
                    Also including to take along- the dog Montmorency
                    In picking fights and catching rats- it took a fancy
                    The adventure proved worthy-with little discrepancy
                    While Jerome's narration- was their main occupancy
                    The excursion upon Thames, shed their complacency  

                        All of them being well off- could easily afford
                        The choicest of eatables - they  could hoard
                        Still managed to limit- the goods on board 
                        The journey was hilarious - none was bored
                        And not only their health- was fully restored
                        But even their spirits - had steeply soared
                        The life along Thames - had been explored
                        Rowing was curtailed- as it heavily poured   
                        The boat trip ended- just beyond OXFORD
