What would you take to a desert isle,
my teacher wanted to know
I told her my Bible. That made her smile.
A copy of Robinson Crusoe!
She liked that one too. I mentioned my dog.
And pictures of Grandma and Grandpa.
She wept. Her glasses started to fog
and a tear ran into her bra.
I mentioned my schoolbooks, and gave her a grin.
She looked at me and squinted.
She wanted the truth? Two bottles of gin
and every Playboy ever printed.
