Text Problem in recieved e-mails

I have just recieved this poem from a friend and wondered if anyone knows what causes the "Rat" in the text. (First line in third verse)? Also further down the page....

I know he hasn't sent it like that.


I feel for the men who have been cheated,
The ones that went through the war,
They fought for the process of freedom,
And saw all the blood and the gore.

They are strapped with a measly old pension,
Though they rarely complain,
Their pleasure is down at the local,
In out of the wind and the rain.

Bid “good day� to the Landlord,
And just settle down with a jar,
Tamp on a pipe of tobacco,
Relax and smoke in the bar.

Now those bloody Do-Gooders,
Have ruined the peace of the old,
By making them stop what they are doing,
And go out for a smoke in the cold.

I reckon for all them true smokers,
That laid their life on the line,
It's a case of selfish injustice,
And law ahead of it’s time.

The heroes of England like Nelson,
Would turn and revolve in their tombs,
If they heard of the rule of no smoking,
And insult added to wounds.

It will be because he has done a 'copy and paste' from a webpage

lotvic. Thanks for that, learn something new here every day. I don't have a web page so maybe that's why I never knew about it. Thanks again...
