The Boy Who Was a Funiosity

The Boy Who Was a Funiosity


The boy they called a funiosity
whose downfall was his curiosity.
He jumped into a box full of shoes
and got shipped off to Peru.


When they found him they said he could have been cleaner,
before they sent him down to Lima.
He thought it was all terriffic,
and hopped onto a ship to cross the Pacific.


He was quite peculiar, in his own amusing style,
wearing a panama hat and a great big smile.
In his mind was an idea to see the glacial melt
where the Atlantic meets the Pacific would be exciting so he felt.


He sailed away on that ship,
where the Captain beat his crew with a whip.
He would hide away in the hold,
he was no coward but he was not bold.


When they arrived at their destination 
where the glacial melt underwent creation.
He ended up in the drink,
and that was the end of him..I think.
