The Juggler capers in, dodging rain from the West
St George has a brolly and a star on his breast
Bold Slasher likes rain, he’ll not hide with the rest
The Doctor has a topper, he knows what is best
The Black Prince of Paradise, his robe’s put to the test
The Egyptian King’s slaves keep him dry. Not a jest!
Hector The Champion is snug ‘neath his crest
But what of poor Tosspot, his coat’s not the best
Ah he’s safe from the floods, he’s found an old life vest!
If you, like the others, want to be well impressed
Good Friday! The Pace Egg! Make Heptonstall your dest…..(ination)!
