The Funeral

By John Aldred

The funeral's over
The remains are now at rest
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.
