He knew his place in that sacred sanctuary

A Yorkie , fought to reach his century

Never before have we seen the likes

Of this formidable soul who captured the light

Of not just his homeland, or the stars gazing down

On others so distant from our far away crown

It all started as a century treat

One hundred laps around his garden peat

To raise a quid or two, for our NHS

Low and behold you would never have guessed

He touched the souls of far & wide

33 million pounds of the nations pride

Always bright and beyond tomorrow

Still something to do , he decided to follow

A secret passion and sing for his supper

Liverpool cop unlike any other.

Captain Tom you’ll be welcome above

With open arms from angels & doves

May God Bless Captain Sir Tom Moore

 

Mr P. Stafford, Ashton-under-Lyne
