Say A Spittle Word? Today we're here to see Pete Sutcliffe go west, The charitable say 'God only takes the very best,' So, before someone sets down this thorny wreath Who wants to pay tribute, before Pete's laid beneath? Or toss a clod on the casket, as per popular request? Let us pray in the hope Pete has a long uneasy rest In his interminable internment as Lucifer's house guest, There's not a welcoming devilish smile, merely clenched teeth; Pete promised the devil his due, but Pete had nought to bequeath. Poor Devil, getting stuck with an ass soul he forgot he possessed.
