Shin Plaster

A true story, A little known and inexpensive bank note a soldier used to cover a leg wound , thus the name Shin Plaster

Not much has been written
how this name came to be
but give me a second
and you’ll very soon see
Shin Plaster’s a bank note
its value quite low
it was named by a soldier
with a use for this dough

He once got a leg wound
in some nameless fight
and used some old bank notes
to bind the wound tight
he concocted a plaster
from the old notes he found
and thus the word Shin Plaster
became worldly renowned
