John MacDougal

John MacDougal was the one
Whom no one could abide
For he ever loved to show
The lashes on his side.

Over cigarettes and beer
His tongue would rise and wander
Far and wide and deep and long
And tear his heart asunder.

John MacDougal drank and spoke
And drank and spoke afresh
Ne’er to see the other lads
Bore lashes on their chests.
