On The Hearses

In Memoriam
Reg Varney
Stan from On the Buses

So, farewell
Then Reg Varney.

'Gor blimey, keep your
Hair on, Blakey!'
That was
Your catchphrase.
And 'Phwoar, coppa
Loada that new clippy!'

My dad says
You were
The first person
In the UK
To use a
Cash machine.

He heard that in a pub quiz.

E.C. Richard (29)
