Good Friday, 15th April, Weaver's Square, Heptonstall.

George has got a cough
Slasher's got a cold
Doctor has the vaccine
At least that's what I'm told

The Prince is in his sickbed
The King has gof the flu
Hector's run away again
And Tosspot's not a clue

Enter now the Ringmaster
To rouse them from their slumber
We'll see you all Good Friday
Every one of our number!
by Andy Carter
