Treasure Island

John Thorkild Ellison

(17/04/51 / Edinburgh)

Ban the Grand National! !

'What's wrong with a little fun?
Betting on the horses and seeing them run? '
'It's hard to be rational
About the Grand National,
But will somebody tell me why
So few people object when the horses die?
Am I just a fool
In thinking it cruel? '
'Don't worry, my friend,
It isn't the end!
Why feel such remorse,
And only a spoilsport would cry! '
