Remembering Spike

This dude on stage,
Ageing, lithe, in a rage.

Was there raising money
To save a tree.

What made him so very mad
Was his jokes were so very bad

That no one laughed.
Just coughed.

But he had a bat,
And a dummy with a hat,
Which he beat with a fervour
Until our laughter
Was enough.

It was Spike
At the mike.

I hope another Milligan
Will soon rise up again.
I miss that funny man.
