'Help, help, ' said a man. 'I'm drowning.'
'Hang on, ' said a man from the shore.
'Help, help, ' said the man. 'I'm not clowning.'
'Yes, I know, I heard you before.
Be patient dear man who is drowning,
You, see I've got a disease.
I'm waiting for a Doctor J. Browning.
So do be patient please.'
'How long, ' said the man who was drowning. 'Will it take for the Doc to arrive? '
'Not very long, ' said the man with the disease. 'Till then try staying alive.'

'Very well, ' said the man who was drowning. 'I'll try and stay afloat.

I read this poem at a funeral as a last homage to my Dad who died of dementia last week. A refreshing change from the doom and gloom of the religious nonsense and I know he would have been laughing at it with me. This poem has multiple layers and every time I read it I see something new. Milligan was a mad genius!
