Poetry Corner

In Memoriam Chris Penn, Hollywood actor

Farewell then, Chris Penn
You were the star
Of the film
Beethoven's 2nd.

When I say "the star"
I mean, after the dog
And the kids
And Charles Grodin.

Reservoir Dogs
Was your best known film
You played
Nice Guy Eddie.

Now you are
Nice Guy Deaddie.

With apologies to E.J. Thripp (aged 17 ½)
