A FISHY TALE (TAIL)
He loved fish.
He had it for his breakfast every morning.
Full of Omega Three and fatty acids,
good for a healthy heart with cholesterol lowering properties.
Herrings were his favourite.
Freshly caught, bright eyed and glistening,
straight from the sea each day.
Coroner returned verdict of death by choking.
It was a short drive
From the church
To the graveyard
Where we laid her
Next to the others
Who had gone before.
She is with them now.
