Sir Terry Wogan

I was shocked and saddened yesterday to hear of Sir Terry Wogan’s death.  He seemed like a real gentleman and a very decent human being.  Of course, one passing of a 77-year-old former BBC presenter should not outweigh all the many murdered, starved and drowned in our dark world, but I was moved to write a pair of limericks, which I believe is a fitting tribute to a man who hailed from Limerick and, by all account, was rather fond of his home town.

There once was a Sir named Terry

Who made us all very merry

With witty remarks

And humorous larks

On both radio and telly!

 

Our friend so sadly departed

Was warm, affable, big-hearted:

Helped children in need

Both with word and deed,

Let’s advance this work undaunted.
