•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
•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
