Knowns, Unknowns - Poem by Douglas Scotney

For the purpose of a rhyme
(and a thanks to cousin Lyndall
for the 'Middle Wife' joke
she sent to brother Derek,
who sent the joke to me)
I send to cousin Lyndall
to send to cousin Ros:

A memorable man
mightn't mind going
after a quite short illness,
like Mal,
and unlike Mal,
mightn't mind the masses knowing
what the illness was.
