(adapted from 'Candle In The Wind' by Elton John)

Goodbye Moby Dick
Out of breath and out of luck
You swam the Thames and got yourself
Beached and really stuck

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a mammal in the Thames
Never knowing where to swim to
When the tide went out

And I would have liked to know you
But you were just a fish
Who’ll end up as a tasty treat
On someone’s supper dish

Very good, Martin. Elton should look to his laurels! Are you going to sing it at the memorial service?

I'd love to but unforunately I've got something a lot less interesting to do that day.

I'm pleased you enjoyed it.

Thank you for your kind words of comfort. I shall pass them to next of kin at the chip shop.
