As promised

THE ESKIMO.
Robin Madge 2011

There once was an Eskimo up near the pole
Who wasn't cut out for that life on the whole.
He shivered all night and he shivered all day
And tried hard to keep warm every way.

He found he could cope in his igloo at night
And the thrill of the chase would warm him all right.
But he just couldn't stand to sit there and wait
For hours on end for a fish for his plate.

He took to his kayak for at least on the seas
The water was warmer by several degrees.
And he paddled around and kept warm for a bit
But still felt the cold although he was fit.

And then he decided to try something new
He fitted a stove inside his canoe.
And set off to try out his brand new idea
Central heating afloat, best seller next year?

Alas, the device made of sealskin soon burned
And so once again a lesson was learned
He found out the hard way what many can tell
You can't have your kayak and heat it as well!
