1/. Taking Colombo back To help catch Jack The Ripper Though Sherlock lived then 2/. Staying in all day Solitary confinement Self-inflicted jail 3/. Wind howling round Clouds without their silencers They even sound cold 4/. I mustn’t grumble That’d be my epitaph If not cremated 5/. If I get swallowed By Castro in Havana I’m an in-Fidel Arthur Chappell

we have a tradition in my drinking circle of friends that anyone uttering bad puns gets hit with a hat - I tend to be one of the repeat offenders
