The Lake District ran out of water

The Lake District ran out of water.
The locals started all sorts of rumours as to why.

“Probably Jeff,” said one. “You know what he’s bloody like.”

Poor Jeff was away in France at the time
so couldn’t intervene as his neighbours
besmirched his name
and burnt his house down.
