clodhopping song ( gnos gnippohdplc )

drumming on the mud
rat-a-splat & fiddlesticks
spits a rhythmic thud

plodding of a morn
like the duke of wellington
milk a sopping lawn

kicking sods of turf
sticks & stones & rabbit bones
off the skin of earth

stomping on the leas
nincompoops in blucher boots
as the mizzle pees

prancing in the mist
scrambles as an alibi
scratching something’s gist

dancing on the ground
as the rub of so bellow
murmurs gurgled sound
