Farewell Anon! (An elegy on the fortold end of Sarah?)

Farewell fair Lady Sarah,
"Saz" as she was affectionately known
by the crowds
who come to see her today
in Trafalgar Square

Her epitaph reads: "She died a Thousand Deaths" (rounded to 1 s.f. of course).

The lady who died 852 deaths is remembered by
her faithful dogs,
possibly an iguana, a python,
hordes of chimeric hybrids of the two,
and her arch-nemesis
Sir Thilini of Foot-ah-Scray
"Grand sale, Grand sale"

Lady Sarah will be remembered for her services
in the area of taxidermy
and state embalming

Goodnight kind sir
Goodknight fair lady
ENGLAND WILL REMEMBER YOU
BY THE ROSES IN YOUR HAIR



"Lady Sarah: she did the wilting flower look
1983-??"
