Well Done Frank Clune.

Well done Frank Clune.
Well done, well done, Frank Clune
Walking down
Walking down Fair Street.
All in stylish black,
Black shirt,
Fitted slacks,
Black patent leather.
A smart jacket
With black buttons,
All accessories
A trilby trimmed hat,
Blackthorn cane.

Well done, well done, Frank Clune.
Walking down,
Walking down Fair Street.

A grey moustache
A hint of white stubble
Two coal black eyes
In round owled spectacles
Quite a dashing figure
No need to dash
Fine figure of a man,
Old gent.
Sublime on Mallow’s Fair Street.

Well done, well done, Frank Clune.
Walking down,
Walking down Fair Street.

You have mounted and seized the path,
As is due your age.
You are Ninety. Nearly.
Behind you
Child and father climb on
You having jinked past.
You doffed your hat
As they passed?
The little girl smiled upon
Walks promptly proudly on
Hair bouncing in ringlets,
She skips, head up,
One hand secure in Dad’s,
The other hugs her ted.
She feels comforted.

Well done, well done Frank Clune,
Walking down
Walking down Fair Street.

Like the level house steps,
Your eyes straight ahead,
Military style,
A grandee,
Not a dandy,
In cane, coat and hat.
You have graced
This morning with your elegance.
Debonair auteur
On a simple side-street.
4.
Well done, well done, Frank Clune
Walking down,
Walking down Fair Street.

The shops on Main Street await,
A casual purchase of the paper?
A swish of your stick, toward a draper’s,
A touch of your hand to your hat,
A nod to the ladies at the cake shop.

Your moment of elegance lifts the days, the months, the years.
