In Memoriam
Matthew Clark
(with apologies to Private Eye)

So Farewell then
Matthew Clarke
Or was it Clark?
I can never remember.
I don’t suppose it matters now.

You never really acted your size
Or picked up many accolades.
You were just somewhere people went
To buy bargain booze.

Now the Accolade has gone
To someone else.
And Bargain Booze
Has bought you.
