Scone's Lament

Scone’s lament Bronco Don rode into the Dirran… café, It was owned by the Spiro the Greek, The patrons went into a Magpie smother flap hey, Big brown horse and a whip cracking, geek, Ole Brownie the horse would go any where, So up the front steps he did canter, Curses flew rare, young Scone couldn’t bear, And Don booted his butt, like bad Santa, An underage girl was the cause, yes sweet Merle, When push came to shove in the game, Don booted the Scone all around the Balonne, And the river was running again. Don’s half sister Clare, flew out of her chair, And ran off to catch the train, Bronco Don was still chasing the Scone everywhere , So Clare went to Goondi-windi, it rained. True story in 1947…..Don

    back before political correctness...as a child you got chastised by a boot up the kyber pass...If you looked sideways at a policeman...or gave cheek to anybodys father...the police got lots of respect...
