Am writing. BE YE WARNED AND TITTER YE NOT.

Ad interim, here:

A Scillonian Shanty
 
Weeeeeeeeee –
    LEFT our wives on Garrison wall
In the isles of our birth:
Bound, bound, bound, lads, away-o!
 
There’s fathoms over garden lands
That once were of earth;
We’re bound, lads, bound, bound away-o;
 
Sea…
    ROCKET and wall pennyworth
And haul away home!
For we’re bound, lads, bound, bound away-o!
 
We left St Mary’s garden isle
All for a sailor’s berth,
And we’re bound, bound, all bound away-o.
