Rankers Poem Example

The Great Bell of Bow

The Great Bell of Bow

I feel such a Steam Tug and no Porkies
Some Tea Leaf Half Inched me Jam jar

In me local Nuclear Sub you wouldn’t Christmas Eve it
Almost totally Boracic on the way to me Pope in Rome

It’s Radio Rental I was just havin a George Raft 
A nice Beggar Boys *** such a lovely Pigs Ear

I only popped out for a quick Gypsies
Not even time to upset me Chalfonts 

Me I’d Raspberry n Ripple em
But no leave it to the Bottle and Stoppers 

Called Uncle Wilf he just showed me the Henry Moore
Forced to use a Sherbet Dab to get to me Mickey Mouse 

I hope the Barnaby or the Garden Gate does em
If not up in Ding Dong or blessed with Surrey Docks 

There all covered in Dudleys and end up Hank Marvin
The J Arthur Rankers
