Orville, Pile of feathers discarded on the floor
I don’t need you, I never have………sure
It’ll take me a while to adjust but you’re
Only a small chapter in my life story

Comedy shows, heckles and crows but more
Of this is what I want independence a cure
To a life of this and that you and yours
No double act from here for sure,
Cliché stardom for the poor

The first interview on my own today and ‘cor
It’s strange but for the better and ‘phwor
I look ace without the mess that your
Hideous greenly face had caused

But still I have to start from scratch back to the top, claw
Just don’t dare discuss that disastrous bird it’ll snap my final straw!

Read this via the random read - it made me smile and I appreciate the sentiment - Keith Harris was a legend.

I'd love to help sharpen this up - the comedy depends on a strong rhythm and and needs more incisive rhyme. It also suffers a bit with some grammatical confusion - "Hideous greenly face had caused" doesn't really work - greenly is an adverb and you're using it as an adjective.

Thanks though, takes me back.
