C’YA MATE…

IWVPA Bronze Helmet Top Poet Award of Excellence for November 2001 “Is that you screaming Harry? HARRY!!!
Someone help him – please!
He’s just moaning now poor Harry,
Out there beyond the trees.
Jesus! I’m cold, I’m freezing mate,
I’m shakin’ like a bloody leaf,
Harry!!. I guess it’s too bloody late,
“Oh Hell! Oh Hell – Oh bloody grief!”
Shit it’s dark, hey! How come it’s so bloody dark?
Everything is so bloody wet –
Skip, Skip! Gee’s what a lark.
Skipper Harry got it mate!!… Skipper!
Where the hell are you?
Shit…… “
