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!

*(Chorus)*
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.

*(Chorus)*

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

*(Chorus)*

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!

*(Chorus)*

Gid
