Steve (Skinner) inspired by the full moon over Butlins, Skegness, during The Great British Folk Festival, to write a poem: 'Full Moon Over Butlins'!
Steve (Skinner) was inspired by the full moon over Butlins, Skegness, which shone above the Great British Folk Festival this last weekend, to write this wee poem about a full moon over Butlins, entitled 'Full moon over Butlins':
Full moon over Butlins, there are rituals on the sand
The Red Coats are all druids, the waiters worship Pan
Instead of ‘Morning campers!’ or shouts of ‘Hi-Di-Hi!’
They're droning chants for ancient gods beneath the pagan sky
Instead of roller coasters or scampi in the pub
They're roasting half a vicar to inspire Beelzebub
Instead of swims and boating, or tennis on the lawn
They're drumming for Diana beneath the trees at dawn
I miss the evening bingo, the games beneath the sun
But all night wild dancing is really, much more fun
