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


Michael Ashby

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...
