Frank Allen – By Carla Buckley October 2011


Last night I walked through Redditch Town,
Up a hill, where once stood ‘The Crown’.
To get there though, I went under a bridge;
Where I spotted a slug wedged in a ridge.

With disgust I stepped back and trod on something………slippy.
Falling back, I found it was a kebab from the chippy.
Bread, lettuce, kebab meat and chips;
Then I found I put my hand in some bloody dog s***!

On my trouser leg I wiped my hand,
And stumbled forward as I tried to stand.
Awfull smelly muck, not hard or slight;
It was then I turned and witnessed a fight.

First was the shouting and then the thud.
The one slapped the other and I’m sure I saw blood.
Two forty somethings, I watched them brawl;
Then thought I’d get comfortable and sit on a wall.

Too drunk to stand, the one fell over p*****.
The other threw a punch and clearly missed.
As he laughed, the bearded one helped the other up,
Beardy said “mates, but you’re still a cock”

They walked towards the wall looking menacing at me,
“Who you looking at?” said the bearded he.
“No one” I laughed, “you’ve had a few, go away!”
As I pulled a stupid face and looked the other way.

I said look, I mean no harm, let’s shake on it;
Reluctantly he agreed and we shook a bit.
After shaking – hands that is, of the bearded one;
Happily down the hill they’d gone.

Knowing that I had the poo on my hand.
Remember the poo from when I fell to the ground?
Well I saw Beardie pull from his pocket a pie;
Slurping and belching to his friend as he said bye.

Placing his hand around it, taking a bite;
I heard him yell, “This pie tastes like shite”
The moral of the story is simple you see,
Don’t stop to look at slugs on bridge walls while you pee!
