Little S***t

From the Dunstable Gazette comes this Frank Batt ode:

They changed the name of Shitlington
In Queen Victoria's day
To guard her sensitivities
If she rode by that way.

But changing terminology
Creates a name of mystery
And the altered etymology
Just mucks up all the history.

For the Anglo-Saxon origin
Was changed to 'Shillington'
Which kept the 'ling' diminutive
And the homestead word of 'ton'.

But now they should
bring back the name
To the one that truly fits
For the place that we
all know and love
As the home of little S**t.
