his cup runneth over its use by date
The great Will Shakespeare.
Remembered for his plays.
The great Rembrandt.
Remembered for his art.
The great Nellie Melba.
Remembered through her Edison recordings.
Hey Alice! Do we really need to keep this cup
old what’s-his-face won in some darts competition?
It's not as if he was famous or anything!
I have my mother's Scrabble set,
a few of my father's tools,
one or two picture of my grandparents
but no record of great-grandparents
except names on the family tree!
More would be good,
even an old trophy would be better than nothing.
