Funeral Poems For Rugby Players "The Rugby Player's Last Try"

 

 

 

THE RUGBY PLAYER'S LAST TRY

The rugby ball inside the coffin

Rather gave the the game away

As a diehard rugby warrier

Determined to play on in future days

 

Believing there was more than one H in heaven

At the ends of astral turf grounds

And that the rugby universe cup

Was still in its early rounds

 

After a lifetime that had seemed eighty minutes

With a body clock now in the red

The gladiator scored his last mortal try

Touching his head down on mother earth's bed

 

Michael Ashby
