There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    Well, no one seems to be interested in this one, but the answer is True.

    This was highlighted when Irish bookmakers Paddy Power offered money back to punters if sprint champion Oscar Pistorius "walks" away from killing girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. It prompted a number of complaints to the Advertising Standards Authority, who ordered the removal of the advert. It is now the most complained-about UK campaign ever.

    They were able to create this "novelty" bet because the company's headquarters is in Ireland and the trial is taking place in South Africa, but as I always say, "Just because you can, doesn't mean you should."
