Forswear Courage

Hollie was a hostage       [Roland ]

For reasons widely known       [Padfoot ]

But lacking proper postage       [Kansas Sam ]

Or a working mobile phone       [P ]

She learned to do with roughage       [Apsley ]

Sometimes with a salad       [Roland ]

She liked to order soup       [Karin ]

But being rather malade       [Roland ]

With measles, mumps and croup       [Beefy ]

She cooked up pans of porridge       [Padfoot ]

Captors, at the keyhole       [Roland ]

Peer in silent awe       [Beefy ]

As pyramids of sea-coal       [Roland ]

Fall victim to her jaw       [Apsley ]

then begins the carnage       [Roland ]

       [Beefy ]
