THE MONKEY LEGEND
By Robok - April 7 2004
The Monkey is from a legend from the
17th Century of the Crofters of the
Original Hartlepool, who discovered
a Monkey fully clothed washed up on
the beach after a violent storm.
They thought it was a French Spy
and hung it.
In former times, mid war an' strife,
The French invasion threaten'd life,
An' all was armed to the knife.
The Fisherman hung the Monkey O!
The Fisherman wi' courage high,
Seized on the Monkey for a spy;
"Hang him!" says yen; says another, "He'll die!"
They did, and they hung the Monkey, O!
