An Innocent fatherless boy
A young lady was wickedly chased
by a man with intentions not holy.
Though once so incredibly chaste,
her innocence now was not wholly.
He cleverly seduced with a carrot,
this man; self-described as a colonel,
a ring with a diamond, one carat;
the truth of that; not one kernel.
He embraced her, enticed her to cede,
on the grass in the soft morning dew
he knowingly buried his seed;
she, sadly, knew not, what later was due.
Now, while lying alone in her berth,
as her ship slowly rounded the bouy
this lonely young girl gave birth
to an innocent fatherless boy.
