Dooming a Dutchman

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.
