ARFUR RETURNS AGAIN
I am Arfur the Rat. I live in Nottingham Castle Dungeon. One of Robin Hood’s outlaws, the big ‘airy un, was ‘ere visiting for a time. ‘e was mean, ‘e wouldn’t let me sleep in ‘is beard. I was cold, see? Also, I wanted to ‘ide, see? I knew ‘e would get away, so I wanted to go wiv. The soldiers made the old fool go wiv on a job, but ‘e left me behind and when ‘e came back the others were gorn.
I chewed the big ‘un’s beard, coz I was ‘ungry see? It tastes like rotting cabbages.
