Vance was mesmerized by the tune

whistled by blithe April and June.
The twin girls wore mauve lacy frocks
and fandango lily-white socks.
He shadowed them down to the brook
in hopes of a clandestine look
at their bare ankles and bloomers.
Vance was a pirate presumer
and a liberty taking crook
who would pen a peeping-tom book
to sell to sailors on the docks.
Some swore Vance should be locked in stocks
and force fed prunes from a swine spoon
for behaving like a baboon.
Those femmes were giddy consumers
of flouncing glad-rag costumers.
Alas, their silk purses were bare
so they'd sashay sans underwear.
Vance got a darling double moon
which caused a severe pox of gawks.
His sketches were gobbledygook.
The crude drawings lacked flair and dare
so the girls ducked lurid rumours.
Vance was the butt of ribald jokes
because his talent lay elsewhere.
Drawing nudes takes more than bloke strokes.
