There’ll Never be Another

Read the news today
that you’ve gone
God, can it
be wrong?
As the shock
sinks in
And an image of
your mad grin

Your wild and
anarchic ways
Made people smile
for days
Your bulging eyes
and manic laugh
Had us in stitches
hit us hard

Now you’re gone
taken to soon
There’ll never
be another
like you

RIP Richard Michael ‘Rik’ Mayall: March 1958 – 9 June 2014
