the death he saw, we do deplore,
but only the messengers action,
sign of the skull, and the face it bore,
no sadness or satisfaction,
i have been given the message too,
Charley could be dead by monday,
told old Crab, the word came true,
heart attack, buried on sunday,
a beer on the bar, we left for him,
when we drank to him, that one day:(
thank you Russell Sivvey
