AS ANTARCTIC POEM

Ihe following ingenious poem by Mr Pouting, the official photographer, appeared in the publication issued for thenown amusement by the Scott expedition partv. It was printer! in London a few mouths since, the circulation being limited to 550 copies. The poem treats of the difference of opinion that prevails as to tho correct way of using a sleeping-bag; Ou the outside grows the furside, on tho inside grows the skin side ; ?o the fin-side is the outside, and tho skmside is tire inside As the furside is the outside, and the skintide is the inside, One side likes the skimidc inside, and tho furside on the outside. Others like the stinsido outside, and tho furside on the inside, As the’ sfcinside is the hard side, and the furside is tiro soft side. If you turn the hkinside outside, thinking you will side with that, fide, Then the soft side, furside’s inside, which some argue is the wrong side. If you turn the fnrsidc.outside, as you say it grows on that side. Then the hard side's next your own side, which for comfort's not the right side : As the hard side is the cold side, and your skinside's not your warm side, And'two cold sides vot ing side by side are not right sides, one side decides, If yon decide to side with this side, turn the outside furside inside, Then the hard side, cold side, skinside, beyond oil question’s inside outside. And it doesn’t matter a particle what you do with the bally thing, someone's jure to tell you it’s outside inside.
