A sporting great moves on to that great big dressing shed in the sky. ‘Bye, Ferg.

Red And Black And Blue.

Fergie McCormick was hard as nails, tough as teak,
What carnage on the rugby field he would wreak,
Yet he had a charitable as well as a rambunctious streak,
There would always be
A card of sympathy
When you woke up sometime well into next week.

Time moves on, we move from place to place, lose track of people who matter. Always, you think ‘we’ll meet up again, in time.’ Then, one day, up on the screen pops a casual post, and off we go, into the blue… No humour today.

Belated.

My old school pal Robin has gone, God knows where,
He’s been gone ever so long, and I never knew,
The longer I live, the less this life seems fair,
And its too late to say ‘Robin, its been good to know you.’

January, and the cold and inhospitable month brings yet another bitter blow.

Melancholy Mood.

We say farewell to Dolores and her life too short,
It seems even when life looks good it can end all too badly,

Who knows what adversity and perverse Demons she fought
Trying to keep herself together in a world that’s spinning madly?

Today I’ll sit, spin a CD and pray she found the peace she long sought
And listen as a pure unbroken voice lingers ethereally, eternally, sadly.
