Jeremy Lloyd - d. 22nd December 2014

You scripted the consequences 
of empire (not always hilarious),
the comic possibilities 
of station and innuendo,
our forgettable histories.

Joe Cocker - d. December 22nd 2014

You were the sum
of your diet - Silk Cut,
razor blades, 
John Lee Hooker.
Let the blues 
take you up, now, 
where you belong.

Mandy Rice-Davies - d. December 18th 2014

of stocking-top notoriety,  
then decline
into respectability.
St Peter says 
he does not know you,
but he would, wouldn't he?
