Let’s see if Captain Manson
has the sense to keep his pants on
when the ladies come for tea and macaroons:
Oh there he goes again!
Captain Manson! when oh when
will you learn to stir the teapot with a spoon?
— It’s how we did it in the war,
no fancy silverware,
and it helped to galvanize the whole platoon.
The ladies aren’t impressed
by your military prowess,
now please reinstate your khaki pantaloons.
— O very well, Mein Führer,
I bow to your command
— but you didn’t say that on our honeymoon.
