Dead Men Walking

My ‘Brother’ Fionn O’Brien died in Madrid last week.  David Bowie yesterday. Here’s one for both of them.

 

FIONN

Dead Men Walking

 

Fionn died last week

Bowie yesterday

Which seems a bloody cheek

As they’d so much left to say.

 

They both were hewn from solid gold

Which though it ages won’t grow old

While we remain to mourn their loss

And show how much we give a toss.

 

We’re dead men walking in their shoes

With nought to gain and all to lose

Our generation’s almost gone

But until then we’ll party on.
