A Breathtaking Offer
Why? And why is it being pelted with confetti? Or perhaps the breathtaking transistor radio - for a special low price if you enclose one Reef label, so hurry! - is being pelted with confetti. Who knows. This is a mysterious ad. An enigma wrapped in a mouthwash label. It's a breathtaking offer, all right.
When dinner's done, I leef
The dining table with a sense of great relief
And turn my thoughts to not-a-coral Reef;
It washes off the fragments of roast beef
And anything else that might be underneef
And makes a cleansing tide between my teef
At least that is my belief
And that's all she wrote. For today, anyway.
