Rose gets the poetry bug..

What is good? Nobody knows.

And yet when you’re around it grows.

There are all sorts of things you may not be.

But kind you are, and gooder far than me.

An ordinary superman – yes you, and that moustache,

Which decorates your face with military panache!

Your upper lip’s so goddamn stiff I’d use it as a shelf,

For stacking all the compliments you should give yourself.

Never was a part time soldier so ineptly named,

Than Captain Savage, who for his sweetness is justly, and widely,



In celebration of my best friend Captain Savage!

  2. Beautiful piece! Trying to imagine Captain Savage with a Mustache. Smiles!

    • Do you know the Captain, by any chance? His moustache is a living testament to his extreme manliness!

      • Capt. Savage says:


        You flatterer You, my Moustache is deeply touched… Did you know that it’s the only display of manliness I’m allowed on my face, even in the jungle I still have to shave, all except for my top lip. Plus it’s so luxurious becuase of all the B..lsh.t I speak, natural furtiliser you know.

    What can I say, I am an award flicking junkie… But you are so sweet, how could I resist, and yes I know you already got this one… Add it to the pile and just accept that you are an inspiration to me (both blogging and personally). I don’t have to tell you this, but see link for details.

    Regards, Capt. Savage (a repeat offender)
