    We'll see what you think

    LORD , I HAVEN'T BEEN CAREFUL
    IN THE THINGS THAT I'VE SAID AND I'VE DONE
    I'VE BOASTED TOO MUCH OF MY NIGHTS
    ON THE SPREE , AND GAMES OF PONTOON THAT I'VE WON
    BUT I ALWAYS DID MY DUTY WHERE EVER THAT MAY BE
    AND I SERVED WITH THE PARACHUTE REGIMENT
    IN THE AIR, ON THE LAND ,AND THE SEA
    SO, WHEN GABRIEL BLOWS HIS LAST TRUMPET
    AND THE REAPER HIS HARVEST DOTH GATHER
    REMEMBER LORD, ALTHOUGH I'M A SINNER
    AT LEAST LORD , I SERVED AS A PARA .

    Re: We'll see what you think

    The poem is OK but meaning is lost on me - I am firmly of the belief that Odin has a seat alongside my mates (I do have some) in Valhalla - the only thing I am practicing excuses and rationale for is how close to the bar I can get my seat! It donít matter what I do or who I piss off, my place in Valhalla is confirmed....... I think.

    Keep practicing with the words though, nice and fluffy with real meaning......
    I just don't understand why they won't shut the hell up while I practice my people skills....

    Thank you all if there is any credit I can't claim it . It was taught to me by a bloke back in the 50s . It's one more thing stuck in my old head . I liked it but , till now never " tried " on anybody else .

    You forgot the last couple of lines, PD.

    I said I'm from 9 Sqn and cannot be beat
    So the Lord bowed down and gave me his seat.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.

    And as it was a toilet seat
    You nicked it and made a retreat.

    had to put my reading glasses on then. I thought you said, Jane Mansfield. Was going to say I'm not seeing it.
