In Crematoriam

In Memoriam
Jimmy Godden
Funpark operator and, er, pyrotechnician

So, farewell
Then Jimmy Godden.

'Strike a light!'
That was
Your catchphrase.
And 'Stop arson about!'

Now an act
Of Godden
Has taken you
To that great
Funpark in the sky.

Or that other
One, down below.

Either way,
You were probably

E. C. Richard (29)

Oh ECR, please, please, please tell me you have become bored with the big ol' smoke and have decided to hotfoot it back down to the Eastcliff Mansion! We all miss your witty sattire and breaking news! Thanet needs you ECR!

Sad (er, I think) about JG, hopefully there won't be anymore random spontanious combustions within Thanet's leisure complexes now his flame has burnt out.

I'm one of his old flames. He was definitely hot ! I heard his parents didn't like me and said "Arson can do better than her". I asked him what the blazes that was all about.

I know he came under fire from the public but I'd like to think Jimmy was matchless. But clearly he wasn't. I infer-no blame against him, of course.

Anyway, I'm not sure what bright spark has decided this but they are to play "Light My Fire" by The Doors at his funeral ... naturally the burning question is - will he be cremated ?

Hoho! That's my claim to be the Pun King of Fannit up in smoke, then!

I note with irony that Mr Godden is being buried. Well at least that's the plan assuming his coffin doesn't mysteriously go on fire in the next few days.
