Polar Bare Treacle at The Milk and Honey House (Meligalas)

Stark naked 
At three below 
With the two 
Galvanized pails full 

Of water out waiting 
All night for the morning 
Over-the-head ablutions 
Now wearing ice caps—so 

Mush before the sun melts us all, 
You foot-dragging old dog! 


  1. A poet who's a midwinter

    Over-the-head water-pourer

    -- As witless and inspired

    By the Polar star

    As might in another life have been

    An incurable Arctic explorer!

  2. Such inspired "doggerel" could only come from a master dog-handler!
