Monica’s Friends

Monica Allen is the first name in our address book

And putting a line through it

Feels a sad and final kind of thing


We remember Overmead as a birdwatcher’s heaven

Even though her feline ‘boys’

Were her dearly loved companions


Goodbye Monica

Hope heaven is an avian place

Or has a few cats – and Uncle Jack…
