Title
Sandy Scrue
Description
The poet, Donald Campbell has written a poem inspired by this character by Holt:

Sandy Scrue

What a shame for Sandy Scrue!
His leg's been cut off at the knee;
his strong right arm is withered too
How unlucky can a poor lad be?

His prospects don't amount to much
yet off he hops on his trusty crutch.
In spite of it all, he's smiling through.
Life won't get the better of Sandy Scrue.
