charles edward carryl quotes - 10 of
Oh, a capital ship for an ocean trip,
Was the Walloping Window Blind; ...
The night was thick and hazy
When the "Piccadilly Daisy" ...
we carry home as prizes
Funny bugs, of handy sizes, Just to give the day a scientific tone.
The boatswain's mate was very sedate,
Yet fond of amusement, too; ...
The captain sat in a commodore's hat
And dined in a royal way ...
we cast the vessel ashore
On the Gulliby Isles where the Pooh-pooh smiles, And the Rumbletum bunders roar.
We take along a carrot
As refreshment for the parrot, And a little can of jungleberry tea.
I live on toasted lizards,
Prickly pears, and parrot gizzards, And I'm really very fond of beetle-pie.
there's never a question
About my digestion-- Anything does for me.
a camel comes handy
Wherever it's sandy-- Anywhere does for me.
