Lines Composed on the Occasion of the Death of Sir Christopher Lee

So. Farewell
Then Christopher Lee.
You starred in many
Hammer Horror films.

Dracula, for example.
Keith’s mum says
You were sexy
In that.

But sadly now you
Are no longer
Undead.

I think there
Was also
A film in
Which you played
Alan Whicker,

But I may be wrong
On that
One.

Oh, and you were in
Lord of the Rings,
too. As
Ian McKellen.
