It was New Year’s Eve, and he was toasting all his friends,
There was Tommy and Nigel, Jim and Tony, Alicia and Norma, and Fred.
Oh, dear Fred. His best mate for thirty years, beaten cancer twice and got run over by a bloody bus. He laughed. Fred never seemed to do things by the book.
He raised his glass and realised it was empty……….. again.
He went to the fridge. Only three left.
He started to sing.
‘Ten green bottles……….. ‘
Ten friends, all lost this year, and he was toasting them all.
He staggered back to his sofa, clutching the three remaining bottles to his chest, tears streaming down his face.
Peter, Sam and Trudy.
The last empty bottle fell from his hand.
They were all gone, so who would mourn his passing?
