Black Country folk all shed a tear
As they read the news today,
A true Black Country legend
Has sadly passed away.
Tommy Mundon was a "natural"
With his unique comic style,
His brand of Black Country humour
Had them rollin' in the aisles.
You simply couldn't help but laugh
When Tommy was on stage,
To see the bloke in action
Was wuth yer weekly wage.
Folks split their sides a-loffin'
When Tommy did his act,
They'd loff till they was 'elpless
Until they cried, in fact!
The late great Tommy Mundon
Is in the ever-after,
In heaven you can bet your life
You'll hear the sound of laughter.
And a message to St Peter
Waiting at the Pearly Gates,
When yo meet Tommy Mundon
Yo'll do some loffin' mate!
HOPE readers like my poem written after I heard of his passing. He was a brilliantly funny comic and deserves all the accolades that will no doubt come his way.
