"Officer
Officer 'youth' on Lug. (Expand pics)
Scavvy Five; The Battle of Lug.
A somewhat inadequate dedication to all those serving and missing in action at Scavvy 5.
This be their arsenal. As any likened to a ‘scavvy’ knows,
One pair of mean lungs connected to a good nose.
A twinned leg which when called upon obliges
With a willing show of support to a navigational head,
Furred, feathered or shorn, perched on a good neck.
Cursed is the savvy head sat upon a wrecked neck.
And of the four, three good limbs at least arranged with two below,
The fourth for demonstration or at the very least for show
And telling purposes. Up and down, let’s say, or stop and go.
Not to over emphasise said three be pivotal, palpable,
And very preferably, applicably pliable, whatever be
the gradient reading, insistently steep/gently undulating.
Sound big toes with accompanying digits, well booted like
A full belt of ammo, entire compliment, best scenario.
One generous, meek or sleek headed fill of impresario
Riddled with tokens and tips, regarding yellow snow,
bonus bone fide on GPS, gore-tex, gaiters, high tech
duck down, thigh high, pumped up pillow, and
mattress matters for the camping quotient of the old ‘nouveaux
riche’, various odd stories, myth, legend, lore, long winding endless fab fables and facts.
This be their artillery; Brain, brawn, brass tacks and repartee.
A ‘scavvy’ is a volunteer of the united nations of camaraderie.
Willing to open arms, rib digs, pole stabs, hugs, and small slights to dignity,
Whatever the nation that built them their sound sense of rationality.
Their dictum be carpe and diem, their downfall, their miss-used apostrophe (s).
Success be the scavvy walk, their number at five,
All hail the Brenno the Wicklore, arise,
Ye ranks are accounted for, back from the mists,
Now bladdered and buckled and gladly dismissed.
