Please Explain!

                                            Press photograph


Does the dog know something I don't know?
He's looking rather bored.
And eight naked ladies on the grass
Really shouldn't be ignored.
'What's their slimming secret?
The on-looking ladies muse.
And 'Some of that coconut-butter
Is something we could use.'
But my queries are more scientific.
What are they going to do?
Are they planning to launch that 'thingy'
Out on the ocean blue?
If so they should face the water,
Or they certainly wont succeed!
A bit of my  nautical savvy
Is what they really need!
And what's inside their parcels?
I hope it's some decent clothes.
Or do they contain cut lunches
And drinks, do you suppose?
There's a whiff of Easter Island
About the whole affair.
I looked for them last Monday
And they weren't even there!

they were just trying to put the water from that sea to the place where they are...

hope they can put the whole sea on the other side of the world...

God bless
