Father and I spent a month at Palm Beach, 
Met a widow and daughter and each was a peach. 
We sort of got twisted, mayhap 'twas the water, 
But I married the widow, and pa the daughter. 
When you stop to consider, my daughter's my mother, 
My wife is my granny, my grandson's my brother. 
My Eon is changed to my mother's brother, 
My wife's only daughter, by gum is her mother! 
Now, could any one object under these trying conditions, 
If father and I should change our positions.
