Ponce de Leon went looking for the
Fountain of Youth
and found it
but kept it a secret
because he wanted to build
a theme-park on the
site, with Ferris-wheel and
hot dog stand, but
word leaked-out
and all the bastards around
started hauling bucket-fulls
back to their homes
to bathe in
the stuff
and soon
the fountain went dry
and everyone of
those bastards got old
because its hard work
hauling them buckets
out the jungle.
