In wool clothes came the manikin man

All itching --- and scratching --- and sad.

I questioned him --- much --- about his attire

He replied --- “In winter it’s not so bad.”

 

His wife wore a clear-satin jumpsuit

Which I thought was mildly odd.

She winked at me with her monocle eye

Then ask if I was a god.

 

“I doubt that I am but I never could tell

I wouldn’t know one --- from another.”

She laughed out loud and teasingly said,

“There’s a lake --- let’s try walking on water!”

 

So we gave it a try and in the wink of an eye

My body began to sink.

But she did just fine --- I guess --- because

She feared her jumpsuit would shrink!
