Sic Transit Gloria

A piece of whimsy. And I did find a Roger McGough book at Emmaus, bot not in a box. Indeed I’d of preferred to use ‘Doctor’ John Cooper Clarke as the subject, but it would have spoiled what rhythm was in the lines. And I like Roger McGough!



                                  Sic Transit Gloria


                                    Emmaus Cambridge;

                                        Found in a box,

                                  Some picture frames,

                                       CD’s and books,

                                        One of which

                                was the collected poems

                                    of Roger McGough.

If you look hard enough then there will be always be a McGough!
just the right sentiment without being sentimental.
