Funeral Poems For A Bingo Player: "BINGO!"
My mum's playing Bingo in heaven
With a happy smile on her face
If she'd known there was a Bingo hall in heaven
She'd have looked more forward to the place
Past 78 and heaven's gate
It's 83 and time for tea
With 61 and a baker's bun
And no queue for the lavatory
After 41 and time for fun
She's won with 54 and wiped the floor
I really do thank my lucky stars
My mum landed in heaven instead of on mars

The story behind this funeral poem can be found on our Comments page together with a moving memorial poem Number’s Up by Rebecca Spilsbury...which starts:
I loved going to bingo
And seeing all my chums
I’d listen out for numbers
Hoping they would be the ones...
