Xmas poem by the late Bernie Wood, model submarine guru.

"twas Christmas in the boatyard,
all was quiet and still.
All the crew were on the lash in the boozer on top of the hill...."

The boy stood on the burning deck,
his feet where covered in blisters,
he split his trousers up the back
and had to wear his sisters.
