Old Bill died today

He was a grumpy old sod said Mrs. Grey.

Fool thought me,

For you do not know what memory is

He was a decorated soldier who,

Courted beautiful women

Argued with royalty

And dined with the Aga khan

He loved fast cars and casinos

.

But women cheated him

And his money cheated him.

And finally time cheated him

All gone now,

Just silence echoed by a distant memory,

Interrupted by Coronation Street, and East Enders

Is this the legacy of modern Life.

For Bill, all that is left is the shell

And now that has gone.

Yes he was a grumpy old man

But Modern life too will be cheated by time

.And what memories will it leave

And what will people say about you Mrs. Grey
