Once Upon...

Once upon an amber moon
I met a man in silver shoon,
who tried to sing a bouncy tune
While sitting on a black balloon
and playing on a green bassoon,
In the berry merry month of June.

He bounced over a red dragoon
who was untidy and roughhewn
and carried a maroon harpoon.
He tried to pierce the balloon,
But luckily it was immune
To the attack of that buffoon.

The man continued to croon
As he went into the blue lagoon.
He suffered a bad mistune
When confronted by Neptune
Who whipped up a strong typhoon
To drown the man and his bassoon.


The End
