Refurbished men

The River Lea starts in the Chiltern hills

Its lower banks are filled with daffodils

On nearby downs folks  glide to whipsnade zoo

I wonder if if the tigers see them now

And if the amber tigers would  be pleased

To eat a man when he’ d been over teased.

Since my lover died I’ve stayed away

what would I do if he was  on eBay

Being sold as used for £20

I’d rather keep his ashes underground

Can we refurbish men we used to love

When they have flown away to heaven above?
