The Caretaker

By 4th June 2006December 9th, 2019No Comments

Caretaker, caretaker, why are you here?
Caretaker, caretaker, have you no cheer?
Visitors, if you come, bring your own cleaner
and cook, rations and washer, and pad-locker.
Visitors, if you come, please DO remember
the Duties, and the food for the caretaker.
Bring your own maps and binos for the border
and sleeping-bags for the overnight sleeper.
An adventurer be, if not the boarder
and please, fail me not and bring your own weather.

Caretaker, caretaker, have you no beer?
Caretaker, caretaker, why are you here?
