would probably be surprised to have his art associated with a joke but I had a hard time finding a Blond, a Redhead and a Brunette!
Picture, Readers, if you will, an island in the sea,
And three delightful castaways, sitting beneath a tree.
The first, called Rita, is brown-haired, while Cora's hair is red,
And Wilma is a natural blond, (at least, that's what she said.)
They've been cast-up on the island for many weary days
And they've had to entertain themselves in a multitude of ways.
In the picture they're sun-bathing, by a little island stream,
But I think they're taking quite a risk! I can't see sun-tan cream!
They're bored to tears just hanging-out and waiting to be found.
But what is this? They've found a bottle lying on the ground!
You guessed it, when they pop the cork, a Genie spirals out!
Which makes the girls excited; see them cavort and shout!
The Genie speaks to Rita first . 'What do you wish my dear?
Name your wish, for that's the reason I've been magicked here.'
'How I long to see my family!' cried Rita, straight away!
'Let me return to those I love!'... Said the Genie 'I obey.'
There was a flash, a thunder crash, and Rita zoomed back home
Making a vow, in transit, that nevermore she'd roam.
Now Cora said 'May I return to my own dear native land?'
Said the Genie' Straight away, my dear; your wish is my command.'
In a puff of smoke she disappeared, to
, Arkensas; Little Rock
The little space where she had been was all that Wilma saw.
Finally it was Wilma's turn; she considered her request.
Of all the wishes she could make, which did she think the best?
The Genie waited then he said 'Is there nothing that you lack?'
'Well' said Wilma (she was blond)
'I wish my friends were back'!
