R.I.P.
Frank McCourt
(1930-2009)

Twas a book with strange slang,
With strange words and funny verses.
It was about some Ashes,
And a girl called Angela.
But twas more bout this boy named Frank.
Who had a miserable childhood.
It was sad, funny and utterly brilliant.
You never had such a good time,
Reading about a life so tragic.
So rest in peace, Frank McCourt,
Son of Limerick,
Storyteller teacher,
Pulitzer Winner.
Ashes to ashes, Dust to dust.
