The way we pronounced it, us Scouse boys
on our cycle trips to wildest Wales:
Mo Vammah! As if it was an action star,
hero of sixpenny movie matinees, instead
of a slope-shouldered mountain crowned
with a ruined memorial to George III.
Mo Vammah! Kept in our sights as we cycled on.
Mo Vammah! Target for all of our lives to come.
Christopher T. George
