I have always known a variation on that one.

The boy stood in the burning dock
Picking his nose like fury
Rolling it into little balls
And flicking them at the jury.

 A courtroom dock, hence the reference to a jury.

I presume he was there for assault

The cabin boys name was zipper
He was a naught nipper
He filled his arse
With broken glass
And circumcised the skipper.

Now I'll be in the dock

The Boy stood in the witness box
with a pocket full of crackers,
One slipped down his trouser leg
and paralysed his kneecap.

I do believe that our host MM has quite an ability for the prose!
His 'Lancastrian' musings are something to behold and read...can we see some more MM?

You are very kind Beastie, my scrawlings  are OK but you have the real talent with the quality of  your artistic work.
You could always post a few to delight our new friends.

modest malc some call him but he has a bite to  his tale!

here's one to get the tongues wagging:

Used to be Great for a While!



It started off  a dim and dismal island
shrouded in the mists of heathen times
ransacked by the celts and then the Romans
but for greatness it  was only biding time
 
Weathered all the storms and the invasions
and finally forged a nation out of steel
ruled the seven seas and many nations
Became a ruling empire for a while
 
It ruled them all with strictest perserverance
Of the British rule of God and King
It plundered all their goods and their servants
made them slaves in shackles they would bring
 
For a while it held it all together
but like all the empires gone before
it lost the plot and just forget
what made the greatness more
 
It shrunk to just one island
of many different creeds
it welcomed all with open arms
and welfare let them breed
 
for a while it stayed united
but even that fell off
Wales, Scotland and then Ireland
choice their own Celt plots
 
So now it stands all naked
not knowing who it is
it bows to other nations
that form the European grid
 
It used to be called Great Britain
the British Empire too
United Kingdom for a while
and now just England will do
 
 
 
 
 
Like all the great past empires
it's had it's glory days
been puffed with pride
sacked far and wide
and now is past the haze
 
But still it exalts tradition
and remembers glories gone
maybe it wants the past to last
and recall battles in the sun
 
but life is constant in one thing
it always has to change
the past won't last; just let it pass
embrace the future games

Boxing day again?

St Stephens day is here again, Christmas a thing of the past,
Presents and gifts forgotten and left, their memories seldom last,
Uncles and Aunties, Mums and Dads, sons and sisters all,
Parties over, festive fun and the Christmas ball.

Sated, full, stories to tell… of the fun they’ve had,
Of toys and games and friends they’ve made, a Christmas not half bad,
Back to homes, warm and dry, with tables full and wide,
With family’s bosum open and safe , no need to run and hide.

But out in the world so big and bad, another story can be told,
Of the poor and the weak, the sad and the meek, of many not so bold,
A thought for them as we close our doors, on the cold and the dark and the wet,
Of dreams and prayers and wants and hopes, most of which will not be met.

The lost and the sad the lives they’ve had, many never will be found,
The beaten and the missing, the ones we know, who will never make a sound,
The tall and the brave, the ones who’ve made, their lives so hard live,
Lets remember all that they do, what they say and what they give.

So as we lay us down to rest, after long festive party cheer,
Pray for ones unfortunate enough, to have naught but hate and fear,
That their souls will be caught and held with care and cradled much with love,
And the world be given what it really needs by that white and peaceful dove!
