Farewell, my friend

By: Shannon

Since he left
Not so long ago
There will be no more baseball games
With Charlie Brown losing 23 to zero.

No more football-kicking
No more falling down
No more "round-headed kid"
Sporting a frown.

Farewell Lucy,
Farewell Linus
Farewell to those siblings
Whose influence shines on us.

We hardly knew thee
Forever a Beethoven fan
You shall be.

Bye Snoopy
Bye Woodstock
Your legacy lives on
And a curse to those who choose you to mock.

To the rest of the characters
You have entertained me all my years
Now you are leaving
As I write this in my tears.

To Sparky
May the Good Lord bless you
Upon entrance into Heaven
Since you left us so soon.
