Graham Kennedy - Poem by Francis Duggan

We do not want to believe it though we know he has died
The one who often made us laugh till we cried
And though we will never more see him in the flesh he is forever gone
His great gift of humor with us will live on.

Goodbye Graham Kennedy you were quite a bloke
None better than you for to tell a good joke
Yourself and Bert Newton together were great
Amongst Australia's most humorous you always will rate.

He was such a character his type are rare
As a stand up comedian few with him could compare
And though Graham has died in his seventy first year
It is not the last of him that we will hear.

As in the World of Show business his mark he has made
And videos and d v d's of him will be replayed
He did bring us laughter a marvellous thing
And his praises one almost feels obliged to sing.

Australia's king of comedy is now with the dead
And only good things of the man can be said
He made us all laugh as we sipped on our beers
And he would not want us to recall him in tears.
