Being the 11th of July 2008

"Will this horror never cease?" you mutter to yourself as you dig, dig, dig...
Whipped by the biting wind with it's needling teeth of rain...
Two hours later your labours see you standing in six inches of muddy water at the bottom of a narrow trench...
You haul your weary body from the trench and manhandle the gore-splattered corpse of the fishmonger into the pit then start to replace the heap of soil on top of him...
Two hours later you light a well earned fag and organise your thoughts...
An alibi, an alibi...
Ah ha...!
Off you trudge to The City Folk Club...

Actually, David, the song I offered as my first maritime leftover was "A Fair Maid Walking in her Garden". "...Marry thee" was simply the final phrase.
