My Boatswain's Left Baboon

A third knee is a mighty boon [Roland]

To elephants and eek baboon; [The Agent Apsley]

As you will surely discover soon. [Elizabeth]

Not to speak of a haddock's lung [Roland]

The haddock's wife says it's "well hung" [Stacy]

But does not hum what once was sung. [The Agent Apsley]

The starfish has three dozen eyes [TG]

And with them, ever eager, spies [The Agent Apsley]

Looking out for fresh pork pies [Bop]

On some dark planet far from light [The Agent Apsley]

They cannot tell their left from right [TG]

Or when seeing see their sight [The Agent Apsley]

With all 'tis fair and fair alike, [Stacy ]

To curlew, owl and even shrike [TG]

When they go hunting on their bike. [The Agent Apsley]

The ostrich and the wildebeest [TG]

Did both resolve to have a feast [The Agent Apsley]

But squabbled over which ate least [TG]
