Thoughts of Yorkshire by Carol Robson

After watching the 2nd stage of Tour De France going through Yorkshire and the amazing views I decided to put this together with my poem which I wrote a few years ago about my home county.

Sod’Em (Sodom)

Standard

Sod'Em

SOD’EM

(SODOM)

(this is a poem from my Gay Biblical Whispers Set: Sod’Em using Yorkshire dialect words, see picture for word meanings)

 

Eyup

Sitha  a reet rum lot these

nowt like being a bit blathered

heads together

having a good chunter

perhaps without gumption

can’t keep dawks off each other

having a fratch

or a good feight

seen by religious leaders

who are really

a reet maungy mardy lot

to be getting narked

with a group baht common sense

who appear to be fugglin

who they treat as Straif

or just the Trammel of society

who they would never Tig

or never Lig with.

 

Perhaps there was,

really nowt  indecent

perhaps they called,

each other Conny

affection shown,

just having a reet good time

they weren’t really bad un’s

just showing love

eeh by gum I love everyone.

Now then my flowers

I’m certainly not flummoxed

when I say they should have

huggered up and shouted

at the Mardy bums

SOD’EM ALL!
