MOIST  ( Circa 14/05/2015 )
Oh sweaty purple polyp It is time to be rejoiced I have a full hoist Of oysterly oyster So moist Moist, moist, moist What a foist This has to be voiced Not even the salmon fishers moist With their dribbling boat could hoist Everybody like to be moist So again let’s foist And expectorate a fully voiced We can grow more moist Our sluggish eyes can feast On the mucilaginous beast Humid, putrid, Dampish, crunchy and wet Yes, bring us more sweat We have our towel Smear those damp cloth fouled Let the towel growl And howl I hear the screeching owl Beginning to rejoice Moist, moist, moist
