Being clean-cut and tight-lipped

But O' was she good-looking

Rest in Pieces
by Dear Heart a.k.a. Broken Wings
 ~*~

Rest in pieces Johnny Speed,
You pressed down on the gas;
Hit a tree while sliding on grass,
The speed limit you did not heed.

Here, arrogant Dr. Walter Frieze
Who in idle boast, cured every disease;
From illness, could never go blue
Lies cold, felled by common flu!
