A FRUITY TALE
This is but an anecdote, supposed to be make you laugh,
But if you find it irksome, you may as well scoff.
A wise man of humble means decided to call on a King,
He carried a gift of bananas, unable to afford any other thing.
Royalty was furious; felt slighted seeing the meager gift,
“Shove it up his ---!” he roared; “And do it really swift”.
When the guards hastened to execute the king’s will promptly,
They were surprised that the visitor was laughing uproariously.
They demanded to know why, in spite of the punishment he was so full of mirth,
He roared helplessly, “Outside is another man with a jack-fruit of considerable girth.”
