Three Mad Martins (Epitaph)



William Martin, Renaissance Man extreme;
Jonathan Martin, bold incendiary;
John Martin, lord of epic imagery;
Three Mad Martins, with their place in history.

These were the Martins, out to conquer all;
Endeavouring to triumph with their backs against the wall:
Mad and proud and dangerous, out of sight and out of mind;
Three cheers for three mad Martins, and all their glorious kind.

(Lyrics & Music: Gary Miller)
