His Legacy (poem)

I share with you this imprint of a man

Depression going far beyond regret

To such an end could not have been his plan

An empty death no mourners to upset

His wife was there she sat beside her nurse

Her mind had passed it too could not attend

Or perhaps with husband now traverse

With memories that called them round a bend

Two sons they made a point to miss the show

Add them the grand hall would have counted six

Their rudeness would and did steal any glow

They could have been out shown by useless sticks

There's really not much more that I can add

Twelve lines replacing odes he might have had
