Is There No Balm in Montauk?

The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to the sea
In a blue jay-poop covered car,
They took some honey, and not much money,
Wrapped up with a Hershey Bar.

To The Royal Atlantic they were bound,
To a room on the second floor.
With two queen beds,
Pillows for heads.
And a deck with a sliding door.

(Take the 'Virtual Tour' of the 'Ocean Front-Extra Large)

They dined on mince, and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And neck-in-neck, out on the deck,
They drank by the light of the moon,
The moon,
They drank by the light of the moon. (Apologies to Edward Lear.)
