I’m Sure You All Remember His Name (limerick)

Priest said of this legend of fame

The whole world will not be the same

Let’s all shed a tear

For man we revere

As we bury dear what’s his name

No matter how many poems and limericks you post, you always seem to post a picture to go very well with it.

Clever one, this is. He's not much of a memorable guy, I suppose!

It really happens - and I've even attended one where, right at the critical moment the priest's mobile phone rang.

I guess that's all that matters is that dear what's-his-name be given a decent burial.
