From The Ambridge Observer- essential reading for all those interested in Ambridge

Gin

The Ambridge Socialist Poet in Residence at The Bull, Nicholas Lezard has composed a new verse:

SCRUFF GIN

I am the ghost in the gin

I will make you bark, and chase sheep

I will make you get lost for weeks in a flood

Of gin

Your owners will grieve for you

Your hair will become wiry

You will become unaccountably enthusiastic in the presence of strangers

You will eat from a bowl on the floor

But no one will pat you on the head.

No, no one will ever pat you on the head

Unless you actually become a dog

After drinking my gin

Woof

Woof
