The Jungle Husband

by
 Dearest Evelyn, I often think of you
Out with the guns in the jungle stew
Yesterday I hittapotamus
I put the measurements down for you but they got lost in the fuss
It's not a good thing to drink out here
You know, I've practically given it up dear.
Tomorrow I am going alone a long way Into the jungle.
It is all grey But green on top Only sometimes when a tree has fallen The sun comes down plop, it is quite appalling.
You never want to go in a jungle pool In the hot sun, it would be the act of a fool Because it's always full of anacondas, Evelyn, not looking ill-fed I'll say.
So no more now, from your loving husband Wilfred.
