A police officer, a spaceman singer
And a dark professor all walk through a door.
Each with a smiling face, in their hearts no fear,
Each prepared for the ride that stops nevermore.
This sounds like the start of quite a dirty joke,
Written some years ago by a funny bloke,
Sadly though, as I wake, it is all too true,
To me, to them, all those left behind by you.
I will not cry for you, not cry my heart out…
I might cry. I might swear; damn, this is no fair.
But what is done, is done; ha, breathe in some air.
You’re gone, forever gone; I think I might shout.
No. Be strong, be happy; safe journey, you’re home.
A star, a snake, a cop ; do say hi for me.
Thank you and au revoir.
