Free Poets Society: Tongan Escape

Boy oh Boy, what a few days we've had

A story to rival that of Sinbad


Col Mara has escaped to Tonga

The rumours of how he did it are getting longer and longer


Can you imagine this tiny island

Can be prepared to pull off something so grand


I am reminded of the times of Ma'afu

When he came, plundered and said F*** you


This is just so crazy

Even more so because details are so hazy


We are told he hitched a ride on a Tongan navy boat

Wonder if he'll sit in the palace and gloat


But how could it happen, where was the Fiji Navy?

They came in were gone before you could say "Hey Baby"


The Tongans have to be sent a clear message,

This is not the end of this passage.


Isn't it funny how I do this every time

Make it all so funny and make it rhyme
