... my previous post should of course have read:

Stanza 3: The monkey is added later still, and possibly first appears in
America. Line 1 in that stanza may end either with “go out” [if the stanza
occurs by itself] or “get home” [from the Eagle, which is the Necessary Variant
when the three stanzas are put together in sequence].

Oops!
