5 Sept 2002 A Barraclough "Family Crest"
THE BARRACLOUGH FOOFAROUGH
We Barracloughs are tough
We Barracloughs are thorough.
Weve shaken every bough,
Weve beaten every borough.
Directories we plough
Are each a very trough
Of Goughs and Houghs
Of Cloughs and Bloughs.
We come down with the cough?
What though we squander dough
And time? It is enough
To know there is no ough
That rhymes with Barraclough.
