Geordie

John describes a humorous encounter when a Geordie comes to a Yorkshire Pit.

Joke among miners.

Geordie comes to er Yorksher pit,
Weer tooiz great s’prise,
Er bat flew up ‘n’ darn t’coil face,
E just cudn’t believe iz eyes!
Knowin abart bad luck ‘n’ bats,
E lashed art weeiz snap can,
T wich t’deputy yelled, “get gooin lads,
Geordie’s killed the fan!”

— John Davison
