The Nincompoop Countenance of a Cashiered North American Naval Officer-Type
by Bodwyn ‘Admiral Lord Smyth’ Wook
To judge from his expression of a rather witless glee, this ornament of the American naval service is extremely soaked & marinaded in the fancier psychiatric medications; one of course can only wonder what Admiral ‘Sandy’ Woodward, RN, should have done with such a plainly full-of-hop fellow in ’82 in the Falklands?
The mad BEADY twinkle in the eye of this fellow DOES inescapably bring to mind the old sea-chantey:
‘…And Tommy Loy,
the cabin boy,
filthy little nipper,
lined his arse with broken glass
— and, circumcised the skipper!
all night long,
ALL night…long! (& cet etc)’
