  • The genesis of the flumpet deserves attention . . .

    From the womb of a musical strumpet

    Emerges that bastard - the flumpet.

    Production is frugal,

    You need but a flugle,

    A bed, and some drinks with a trumpet.

  • ...however; these days the "ump" cluster is just too tempting to resist:

    Don Trump is no fan of the flumpet;.

    You're welcome to like it or lump it.

    By explicit reference

    The organ's his preference

    And chumps are invited to pump it.
