Spot of the Antarctic

As you plough through the snows of December
Remember that poor Captain Scott
Wasn't he the second to reach the South Pole?
Well no, in fact he was not.
Roald Amundsen, he was the first
Or that's what everyone reckoned.
But we've all been under a misapprehension
I've been toald that Roald was second.
When he arrived at his goal
A small patch of yellow snow marked it
For who was first to the pole
Spot of the Antarctic.
It was an elementary mistake
That put Roald out of the hunt
How can the man at the back of the sledge
Beat the dog he has tied to the front?
Then half way through the journey home
He spoke to his pet with regret
"I've miscalculated, our food is all ated
And McDonald's haven't opened here yet."
No for Roald the example of Oates
No bravely going out for a walk
He simply shouted "Come here, Spot"
And got out his knife and fork.
The dog may be gone, but the legend lives on
All down the years dog's have barked it
For who was the first to the pole?
Spot of the Antarctic.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

It's turtle chaos herein Blyth town centre schools could close
Bus's might have to stop running ,vic the landlord is telling people to stay in the bar all day
As as type it's still heavy at least 1/3 of an inch.
Could be at least 1 inch by dinner time.

It's bleaching down at the minute,
Sandra left me a shopping list for morrisons
But soon after leaving the house the conditions worsened :shock:
I've only been able to make it as far as the BLYTH n Tyne bar.
Morrisons is a good 60 yards away but I've got to take conditions into things.
I've done a risk assessment Imho it's too dangerous :duno:
