A REALLY AWFUL TOUCH OF THE TARBOUCHE?


(Fez)

   

 Let’s fez it, a fez is a comical drez

Which rests on an Ottoman base,

It’s handy when hair’z in a bit of a mez,

For keeping it out of your face.

 

But ladies don’t wear them; there’s no hers and hez;

And maybe those ladies are right,

For they look quite silly up there, I confez;

In fact, a ridiculous sight.

  

They’re useful for bellhops … though hops on a bell

Would seem to have little ap-peal

A trip on a clapper’s a clanger as well –

Sad state of a fez, one would feel.

An old organ-grinder with monkey would roam

All over for yez and for yez –

The fez on the monkey provided a home

For musical fleaz, I would gez!

Don’t worry, my fez-tival’s coming to end –

And none too soon, everyone sez –

Before it drivez all of them clean round the bend,

I’d better sign off here as ‘Lez’!
