Every dodge and manoeuvre which would make their way smoother
Was debated and set to the tiniest detail.
By the time they’d laid their plans

And when the sun had stolen from the sky
And night had fallen on the riverside
The four avengers stealthily stole out
And made for the tunnel with Badger as their guide.

All four were armed with stout holly staves.
The way followed many a twist and bend.
For miles they plodded through the dark
Until they found themselves at the tunnel’s end.

Of drinking, carousing and of merriment
The Badger quietly opened the hatch
And one by one the four friends through it went...
