Eskimo Why?

     Just a little nonsense for a Monday….

      The week ahead is yours for the taking, and that is a cold hard fact.

ESKIMO WHY?

What could make an Eskimo,

stay an Eskimo, long?

Bitter cold winds,

and animal skins,

and their women,

won’t wear thongs.

*

That whale fat, is a delicacy,

sure makes my mouth water,

hmm, I can taste it now,

no need for cow,

and for dessert,

maybe some otter.

*

Now, with their dogs, alone,

spending time a’plenty,

those curled-up tails,

over frozen trails,

well, hindsight’s,

twenty-twenty.

*

So, what could make, an Eskimo,

stay an Eskimo, long?

Well, could it just be,

it’s you and me,

and they know,

where we belong?
