Cushing's Lament by Nix Nada


Now, I liked being Doctor Who,

It really was quite nice,

But no-one says, "Hey, I remember you!

You played the Doctor twice!"


"You beat the Daleks both times.

You send them back to space.

"You can keep Pertwee and Baker,

Peter Cushing – you were ace."


I was there aboard the Death Star,

The dastardly Grand Moff.

But where was my great death scene?

Or bit where my hand's chopped off?


Just blown up when the rebels won.

You didn't even see me go.

Maybe I escaped in a shuttle pod…?

You'll really never know.


And don't even get me started on Biggles…
