    I hope I die a youngman's death! But however I die, I hope someone reads my poem 'Live Well and Long' at my funeral. (Report) Reply

    McGough's zest for life is particularly apparent in a poem about death... life should be exciting from beginning to end. (Report) Reply

    Nice! Very nice sense of humour and good use of double meanings.

    how true to heart of the heart that lives young, grows younger year by year. This the soul that cries out for life and holds nothing for granted. to die a cowboy death 'with yer boots on' (Report) Reply
