Michael Edwards




There was an old man from Mauritius

who refused to wash up the dishes

so he ate from the pan

he was that kind of man

was the dirty old man from Mauritius

      She prefers salads served on banana leaves and then there aren't any pans either.
      Any banana leaves near you?

        A porky young man from Tobago
        wrote poetry to make the day go
        but when evening came
        it was all children's games
        for they stuffed him quite full with their play-doh

        • Michael Edwards
