On going through the bags when coming home from the Con I found several bits of scrappy paper with words that I'd *almost* indecipherably scribbled on them in some drunken haze or other.. as most of them seemed to be along the lines of a tribute to the hard working people who made the Con possible, I thought I ought to do something with them.. so here's one.. be warned, there will probably be more!

Their badges were pinkly distinctive,
Their diligence was truly grand!
And if you called out "Security",
They left with the trouble in hand!

In parties of three, with a radio
They travelled round from floor to floor,
In hourly patrols of the hotel
They leant against every door.


They stood at every doorway
And checked for a badge on display,
Then if one wasn't forthcoming
They purposefully stood in your way.


So to all the folks in "Security"
Whose vigilance sure was not slack,
I'm raising my glass to all of you.
Give yourselves a big pat on the back!
