Basil

by Jem Croucher

Sir Basil Fawlty lived a life
as full as life can be
For almost eighteen years
he was within our family

A little border terrier cross
he was peace personified
Hardly ever growling
until the day he died

And ‘tho we all will miss him
we know he’s in a better place
Romping round in heaven
with that smile upon his face
