Ballad of the Suez Canal

There’s a Big Mess in shipping.

I’m telling you, Pal…

no traffic can make it

through the Suez Canal!

A big ship’s gone sidewise.

Nothing can pass.

Nothing can move it.

They’re at an impasse.

The big ship is longer

than the water is wide.

It can’t be maneuvered

by man or by tide.

They need some ideas…

both quick and inspired.

I think that the Captain

expects to be fired.
