In days of old when nights were cold
and the wind whistled over the dunes.
There’s a story told by the brave and the bold
of the marvellous effects of some prunes.
Soldiers would travel to fight and to scout
and that was a very good start,
but too close to the foe they dare not go
for fear of an gigantic fart.
They had no idea in the days of yore
about dietary fibre and stuff.
And a knot in the gut could be a problem, but
life in them days was real tough.
Until purely by chance a maid of the tribe
discovered some wrinkled old plums.
They were good to the taste and too good to waste,
but really quite tough on the gums.
So into the pot she dumped them that day.
A pot which was all filled with water,
and to her delight at the end of the night,
the plums were a size and a quarter.
So try them she must but they failed her trust
and a trip to the loo was now urgent.
But it was nearly all lost ‘cos she found to her cost
that the experiment now was resurgent.
The warriors’ problem was easily solved
by the taking one dose before noon.
So never ignore a simple old lore
that your life can be saved by a prune.
