You doomed a Dutchman to fail the tulip season
In Holland that is equivalent to treason.
The bulbs of the Dutchman will never sprout
He’s in jail and he might get out
When Holland is no more under the threat
Of masses of water, cunning and wet.
To be fair, in your defense,
It doesn’t make that much, or at all, sense
That you shouldn’t wash them thoroughly before
You store them in a cupboard for a year or more.
Now, instead of bulbs, he only found mold,
Which might be worth a tiny bit less than gold.
