Poem

#1
I was looking in a old gunnery manual and I found on the flyleaf, in beautifull faded sepia copperplate writing the following.

Oh Lord above send down a dove,
Wiv wings as sharp as razers
To cut the froats of all the whores
What gives the pox to sailors!

I thought it was funny anyway.

It was also printed in the flyleaf of a WW2 naval novel called 'Send down a dove', but was written as:

O Lord above
Send down a dove
With wings as sharp as razors
To cut the throats
Of them there Blokes
Wot sells bad beer to sailors

:)

It also has Irish Nationlist connertations:

>'May the lord above send down a dove
With teeth as sharp as razors,
To cut the throats of those English dogs
That shot our Irish leaders.'<

Tom Lewis uses the sailor version as the choures in his song "The Sailors Prayer."
