John Morrison Clarke, aka Fred Dag,
aka anyone he wanted to parody and bag.
We all applauded his song and his actions,
but we wonder if he died with his gumboots on.
Dame Valarie Adams,
I’ve never seen her in denims.
An amazing, many times shot put champion;
a woman of strength and fine ambiance
married to a DiMaggio called Joe.
She was a sex symbol, an icon;
and she jibbed at portraying dumb blondes.
