Tsarist Biscuits, Long Ago

Borneo in a biscuit-tin [Roland]

Was smuggled 'cross the border [Ethetran]

Stashed in Tora Bora's caves [Dassn't Say]

To O Bin Laden's order [Beefy ]

Digestives were his usual fare [loaf]

Against the day that western sin [Apsley]

Eventually would do him in [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

Torment of the southern slaves [Apsley]

All forced to pick the cotton [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

Beneath the sun's relentless glare [Beefy ]

The cotton balls were rotten [Grayman]

Which of us, sequestered there [Roland]

'Midst rotting shacks and unmarked graves [Beefy ]

Would think we know how he behaves? [Irene Adler]

Ballot-rigging in the dry [Roland]

Is always much too easy [fester]

Riffling through the aces high [loaf]

Can make a punter queasy [Beefy ]

I often wonder, by-the-by [fester]

I killed your hare, why it should die [Apsley]

Amid such verdicts breezy. [loaf]
