Uncle Seamus

entry picture

Uncle Seamus was quite infirm

and couldn't get up the stairs

So he lived and slept in the living room

but still managed two affairs


The first with a local widow

who set his heart on fire

the second one more ambitious

with the Malvern Hills Girls Choir


He kept himself quite healthy

though his hygiene wasn't best

just washing round the edges

of his sweat-infused string vest


Time eventually caught him up

and he died one August night

from distemper and a severe case

of Irish potato blight


◄ Saturday 3 July 1971, Uxbridge

Ha. You've just reminded me of a neighbour, who ended up in a nursing home. He had several affairs, and despite his infirmity was able to climb on the lucky ladies. Climbing off was a different matter, he had to pull the cord for a nurse to help him.

Thanks all, and I would like to apologise to the Malvern Hills Girls Choir for bringing their name into disrepute.

Distemper I'd heard about only
So Googled, to try clear my fog
Was shocked to discover that distemper
Does not affect humans, only dogs

This strongly suggests Uncle Seamus
Was not really human at all
But hiding beneath his exterior
Was a dog which distemper made fall

(shoulda got vaccinated....) 😎
