I’d like to have a poncho

Protecting me from rain

To keep me dry when walking

Down path and country lane

My mate he promised details

To find one on the net

But sadly I’ve heard nothing

So I’ll just end up wet.


Your answer was so speedy

And beautifully in rhyme

I don’t know how you thought it up

Or even found the time

I went straight off to Amazon

Then Jeantex on their site

Looked first at yellow cycling capes

They didn’t look quite right

And then I spied the ponchos

For hiking and in blue

I chose the size that they call large

I’m bigger, see, than you

So when it rains in future

I know that I will stay

Dry and warm, unlike the time

On that West Highland Way.
