A thought from long ago
Now how can a man do better
For the honour of his club
On the roadways of this country
Than scorch from pub to pub?
This is my version of a couplet written in the visitors' book of the John O' Groats Hotel by W.H. Hillyer after he had helped Lawrence Fletcher (Anfield BC) on his End to End trike record in 1885.
The original was:
For how can a man do better
Than scorch from pub to pub
On the roadways of his country
For the honour of his club?
I've turned it round because to my mind the punch line is '.........from pub to pub', and so it must come at the end.
That poem is great @clubman.
Brings back great memories of what was essentially a 9 day pub crawl.
