A Camel conned his Master to letting him come inside the tent out of the cold thereby forcing his master to go outside

The Camel and His Master

A Camel looked into a tent
and to his Master said
“kind Master may I come inside
or in the doorway stick my head
for the wind blows freezing cold tonight
and you see I am quite chilled”.
“Oh yes”. said he, “ you may do that
the tent is far from filled.”

The Camel moved and stretched his neck
inside the canvas door
and said, “this sure is comfort
like I’ve never known before.”
In a little while he called again
his neck was getting cold
“Then put your neck inside the tent”
the Master to him told

The Camel moved his neck inside
and was contented for awhile
and now to move his forelegs in
he asked the Master, with a smile
The Master moved a little bit
to give the beast some room
he told the Camel “that he may
outside was like a tomb.”

The Camels front was barely in
again he spoke once more
He said, “Master I should come right in
for I keep ajar the door.”
“yes” the Master did reply
“but now there’s not much space”
“and I don’t want to see you cold
outside in that place.”

The Camel crowded in the tent
and no sooner was he inside
when to the Master he had said “You’re Right,
It’s over Occupied
So I may have some room to turn
it’s best you stand outside”;
and pushed his Master through the door
in the freezing cold outside
