The Last Doggral
written by D Phil
I am dead, I am no more,
I’ve now washed up on a different shore.
Is it heaven? Or is it hell?
I look around, I cannot tell.
Misty, hazy – no, but wait,
Is that Saint Peter standing by a gate?
And yes, there’s Chris, Chris my wife;
Thank you, God, for eternal life.
We hug, we kiss and then we cry,
And stand like this till the tears run dry.
The peace and warmth and love combined
Have made us one, in heart and mind.
These gifts we leave to all mankind.
‘Ave atque vale’
Hail and Farewell
