Jonathan's Far East trip
commemorated ... !
Cat Man Due!
‘Twas in the merry month of May
That Jonathan Emery went away
He suddenly got the wanderlust
He had this urge .. it was a ‘must’
And with a backpack on his shoulder
One early morn’ he slipped his anchor
Where d’you think our wanderer went?
Off to Thailand! With his little tent!
He’d only been there but a day,
A thieving Thai took his pack away.
With it went all his hard earned cash.
He was bereft .. gone in a flash!
He found the British Embassy,
On their computer sent this plea,
To all his friends he’d left back home
He pleaded, “I need from you a loan”
“Transfer cash by internet”
“To my bank in Somerset”
And being such a popular gent
We thought “No cash! Stay there! Repent!”
Who will tend the cats? Jane Emery!
Our Jonathan’s just a memory!!
(Did you think we would desert you?)
