Tarquin’s Cornish Gin

Tarquin’s Cornish Gin

A Tarquin’s Cornish Gin

is where I’d begin,

if I began to drink;

I like the picture

of a North-Coast Puffin,

and I’d add some ice to ‘Clink!’

and maybe I’d choose

a fruit-flavoured Gin

from that man Tarquin –

as long as it wasn’t cherry –

and I’d drink too much,

speak double-Dutch,

and really get quite merry.

‘Prompted by Tarquin’s Cornish Gin’

A North-Coast Puffin

said, “I don’t know nuffin’

about the Sahf-Coast.

I never goes there;

I wouldn’t dare,

I might meet a Sahf-Coast Puffin,

and then I’d have to take a care

that I didn’t fall for a Sahf-Coast gal

who lives at the mahf

of the Fowey or the Fal.”
