Funny Funeral Poems
Always known to have a laugh,
Shame you didn’t always bath.
Always late to any party,
Though your excuses they were hearty.
Always last up to the bar,
As if the walk was way too far.
Always last offering to drive,
As if no point to be alive.
Always last to give a smile,
It often took the longest while.
But always first to fight our corner,
Though we’d try our best to warn ya’.
That phrase you used when you were mad,
“Even his mum can’t love that lad!”
The way you smoke a pipe was cool,
When I tried myself, you said “you fool”.
The way you got every first round,
But told me I couldn’t borrow a pound.
The way you had your fav’ pub chair,
And heaven help others who sat there.
The way you swore when you lost a bet,
And cursed your friend’s “best tip yet”.
We went fishing once,
But not again,
Because you blamed me
for the rain.
We went drinking
at the pub one day,
You revealed the secrets
to life “your way”.
Put others first,
But be aware,
Some will use you
but try not to care.
Just do right,
And not do wrong,
Try to help folk
to get along.
