A POETIC response to a recent crime.

Dog-end Detectives

Just t’other week, t’Observer said, a dog-end was dropped in a flower bed;

The criminal walked on without a thought, but minutes later our villain was caught.

A dog-end detective had seen the crime and

Gave this baddy a hefty fine. So let this be a warning to fag-ash Lils and

Cork-tipped Tommies too; just keep a lookout for these guys, for they’ve

Got nowt better to do.

Oh what an age we now live in, when to drop a fag-end is a sin. All right!

All right! these dog-end tecs have a job to do,

But how do they sleep at night?
