Critics slam Rockface Poetry

A highly credible first entry into the poetry arena by the NCB bard was met with severe criticism from Poet Laureate Brusselsblue who was quoted as saying:

"This is just an extension of the 6th year "special ". class philosophy. Encourage the weaker students by lumping them in with the more talented ones. Mine is poetry - that was a limerick"

The controversial piece reputedly describes events at a recent 150 year celebration of the old school when allegedly things got out of hand. Decide for your self the critical merit of the piece:

"Theirs not to reason why
Theirs but to do or die
Into Glessons (Valley of Death) ran the 100

Dobs and Rouge and all were there
The boozing was such that they gave no care
Someone said let’s cross to Mass
And suddenly there was shouting and glass"
