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
