Timber


I once was happy as could be
A branch upon a mighty tree
The Canadian Rockies were my home
From which I thought I’d never roam
~
Then one day, I think in May
Three lumberjacks strolled along
Clad in dirty vests, with hairy chests
Singing a Python song
~
The girly one, they called him Sue
Cried “Look I’m sure this one will do”
Swung a blow with his mighty chopper
OMG it was a whopper
~
All too soon we were bits of tree
For England bound across the sea
Shaped, chiselled and sandpapered down
Brought to a Grog shop in old Camden Town
~
Oh! Lordy the sights I was to see
In this awful den of iniquity
A hooker and a cross-eyed bloke
Were supping lamp oil laced with coke
~
While an ancient craggy faced old doll
Was gyrating round an upright pole
The rumour was, or so they say
He had come ashore that very day
~
My fate was sealed, the die was cast
I had found my future home at last
Please forgive my shame I beg
Cos now I’m Long John’s wooden leg

Hi John,

I'm not sure I should know where this idea came from but I am glad it formed in your imagination.. hysterical ending (although, for a moment, I thought the poor piece of wood would become a strippers pole..).

Amazingly easy to follow. Keep on writing.

~ Daniel
