    Default Oh, George! (CTG)

    Oh, George!

    As I sat on the crapper this morning
    I recalled whenever Grandad said "crap"

    my grandmother always said, "Oh, George!"
    He wasn't a coarse profane man, so when

    he used such a crudity, it shocked.
    And there are worse "c" and "f" words--

    I myself think the "f" word's used too effing
    much. You won't find me deploying it much.

    My grandparent's daughter wanted to marry a man
    of the name of George. Then I came-- Oh, crap!

    Mum wanted to name me for Grandad, but didn't
    want me to be George George, so I got his middle

    name, Thompson. People who married into Mum's
    family, the Matchetts, were never quite good enough,

    so poor Dad, a physical therapist, never measured up.
    The Georges had the blood of jewellers and tidewaiters

    (whatever a tidewaiter is), Norfolk publicans, too.
    The Matchetts were, well, dock laborers, though

    Grandpa's brother was a Liverpool comic. Even I could see
    the Matchetts were not what they were crapped up to be.

    tidewaiter n. A customs officer who boards incoming ships at a harbor
    When the smoke has cleared and the bullets cease.another soldier rests in peace. The politicians who caused the fight, rest at home no danger in sight
