Little Bo Peep has lost her junction

It never was thus so

For she an Excise Man once was

Many years ago.

The gentlemen from Hawkhurst came

Their booty to retrieve

Armed with cutlass, they killed Bo Peep

And others who did deceive.

Later on the railway came

A tunnel did they dig

By the portal, two lines joined

Although not very big.

A nearby inn was called Bo Peep

Where the navvies used to drink

It’s strange how unrelated things

Finish up with a common link!
