The Funeral

By John Aldred

The funeral's over
The remains are now at rest
Buried
In that Man. United vest
Eight years experience
Along life's daily test
Is far too short a time
To begin the endless quest.
The funeral over and the driver
Of a wayward car
Will journey on
With only just a scar
Perhaps a few endorsing lines
And directions where to pay the fines
This seems to be a mite uneven
And very little help
To those who loved the youngster, Stephen.
