Crawford Logan was the characterful reciter, his overmiking unbalancing the sound-picture, and drawing too much attention to these verses (one of which, describing a visit to the local tip which could be happening anywhere, seemed inappropriate) which could possibly be offensive to genuine foresters refusing to be patronised by incoming grockles

It rained on Cardiff and Bridgend, also Neath and Swansea, and as we approached Llanelli - a town so named to enable the Welsh to tell visiting grockles

What's wrong with properly equipped hotels for the grockles
to stay in?
