The poem is below.


Tommy a terror to the villagers
Tommy a nuisance to the people
Tommy why so trouble the people
Tommy girls flee on seeing you
Tommy what is sacred to you
Tommy please change your way
Tommy were you not born with us
Why do you so trouble us Tommy
Why every day invite curses Tom

Sounds like 'Tommy' is a rotten apple in the barrel:-( There are some who seem to incite trouble wherever they are Lewis - they light the blue touch paper, and watch the fireworks explode:-( hugs Jan xx
