An Obituary

Richard Briers
So long
And farewell,
Richard Briers
Of The Good Life.

Never before had
Self-sufficiency
Been such comedic
Gold.
Although,
How far that was
Down to Felicity Kendall
Is a point well made.

You’ve done it
All: stage, film, theatre
Cartoons.
All before the ciggies
Got you.

So, we wish you
Well
In your return to the earth.
May your contribute
To someone else’s
Self-sufficiency,
You jolly nice chap,
You.
