Hatchet Buried

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 A fest’ring wound, a deep incision –
Be careful not to scratch it.
‘Tis better far to have the vision,
To grit your teeth and patch it.
The hurt incurred in that collision-
‘Twas best they should despatch it.
Throughout the year in that division
Nothing else would match it.
So, live upon the television,
All eyes tried to catch it,
When Mick and Roy made their decision
To bury Saipan’s hatchet.


Hopefully this will be an end of it.
