John Peel, RIP

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 You can almost hear him say it,
in his own languid, lovable tone :

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 “He was one of a kind,
was Peely”

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Then hear him modestly chiding
At the riff of tears
Dancing down our cheeks
Yet paradoxically
Siding
With the recently maligned, Liverpool Way
For this genuine outpouring of grief
Is shared nationwide

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 He was like everyone’s favourite uncle
Only with more street cred
He was many people’s favourite football fan –
Even if you weren’t a Liverpool Red

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 I’ll end this tribute
With an argument
That it’s not just anagramatically
That we can propose
John Peel
As the Pele of his field

God Bless, John

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 Rock in Peace

John Ravencroft, R.I.P.
