Disappearing Beach

In Memoriam
Sandy Beach
Outgoing Thanet Council Leader


So farewell
Then, Sandy Beach.

'F*cking tosser!'
That was your
catchphrase.

'Fannit's open
For business.'
That was your
Other catchphrase.

With your
Faithful sidekick
Roger (OBE),
You tossed
A petition in the
Edinburgh Woollen Mill.

Like a verruca,
You were a bit
Of a pain.
And hard to
Get rid of.
So we're glad
You're gone.

E. C. Richard (29)

It's been a tradition on this blog too, for almost five years. Do keep up!

Besides, I don't think my chum Ian would mind.

ECR so near and yet so far,
snug in your cliff top mansion repose
you manage to get up everyone's nose,
whilst pissed in the sea-front Bar

So good of you, and not in the slightest bit egotistical or arrogant, to speak for everyone, 7:05.

Personally, and I only speak for myself here, I really quite enjoy the fella and most of his informative blarney.

Besides, what kind of a sad git reads a blog that they don't enjoy?

Are you under 5'8", by any chance?

Anonymous said...

Under 6" I would guess

705 is suggesting then

That ECR is an allergen

Or perhaps a pincha snuff

Generically the stuff

One would notice up one's nose

In the bar where I suppose

ECR could lend a tissue

Possibly a brand new issue

Or a part used kept to dry

Dabbed only once on his Private Eye.

Very droll, Ricardo. Very droll.

One is trying in retirement.

My wife says the very same thing about me being trying in retirement!
