A Capricorn Bites The Dust

Ye gods, will it never end?
It will, when I toe the line
and 'Urbie' says,
'git your arse in here! '

Today I bid adieu
to my old mate Alan Bainbridge.
I was bereft, for he was indeed,
an old mate.

Accolades with humour, a bit trite,
but in the circumstances, adequate.
Apart from your company I'll miss the
humour, and long (business?) lunches,
Al pal.

It is a very nice poem. It has a well flow.
A fitting eulogy for a dear departed friend. You honor him! Capricorn is one of the most loyal and steadfast signs.
For these words speak volumes of a dear friend that the physical vessel has expelled though his spirit rides amongst the universes that shadow our humble world. Beautiful!
A tribute to a very good friend.
It is very sad and hard to bid adieu to an old friend. You have expressed your feelings and remembrances in a wonderful honorable way and created a great sense of humor in the title as a tribute to your old pal. Please accept my deep condolences as well. Regards. Naseer
