The Coffee Party Ballad
 
Orphaned his chair,
and hushed his wit.
Rather thin his hair,
he’s getting on a bit.
 
Damned lucky spill,
us, you left in the lurch.
Now the coffee party will
be like the yard of the church.
 
Unique chain saw teacher,
gifted if-clauses preacher,
you decided to retire.
What a waste of educational fire.
 
Hear! Hear! In the cable
there’s a whisper of babel
about Talisker and Cardhu.
I have rhymed it for you.
 
Where’s the youth, where the maiden,
where are the things, both we adore?
Shall we get these gifts of Aidenn?
Quoth the pencil: ”Nevermore”!
 
Never mind! Nevertheless,
it remains the Whiskey in the glass.
Both we, long in the tooth,
let us drink and get the blues.
