Dossier
The Hon. Smith, J
Born to Earldom
Mayfair, London
Played for Eton
Never beaten
Rowed at Henley
For the Friendlies
Married Heather
Girl of leisure
No sons issued
(Earldom fissured)
Fought the Somme
Won a gong
Served MI6
In Biarritz
Rumbled spy
(German guy)
Came to hate
King Edward VIII
So pensioned off
To Highland croft
Tended flocks
Fished the Lochs
Hitler stirred
Joined the herd
Back to duty
Fought with fury
Took a bullet
Just symbolic
Reached Berlin
Arm in sling
Finished job
Then demob
Next awards
House of Lords
Voted Tory
Same old story
(Though pretentious
with expenses)
Had a kink
Pegnoirs (pink)
All hushed up
Harmless smut
Took a mistress
Soon relinquished
Found another
Bit of bother
Heart attack
Trace of crack
Died 9 May
[Note: sent bouquet
Three Pounds and Eight
Please compensate]
Now disposed
Dossier closed.
