A Tropical Island


When cook Joe waded ashore on the tropical

island - he had sleep-walked and fallen off

his ship during the night - he was hit by a lump

of ice that fell from a transport plane full of

soldiers flying to yet another war.


The only witness was a man who had come

there to sulk after an acrimonious divorce;

just as well he buried Joe, sailed back to

the mainland and told the truth, rumours

had it the cook Joe had committed suicide.


Joe's many friends came to the island

brought food and ale to give him a proper

send off but changed the truth of his demise

to heart attack, because unkind people may

find the way he died quite hilarious.
