Vale Sir Terry.

Woke up to the news
Sir Terry Pratchett has died
My favourite author
Prolific writer
Sharp social satirist
Creator of many beloved characters in the Discworld universe.
A friend rang while I was commuting, checking if I was ok
It hadn’t sunk in yet, then
And now I feel the sadness, the loss
An honourable man who campaigned constantly and openly
For fairer social health services
Right to die with dignity
Saving orangutans from destruction

You will be missed by so many
But the ripples of your life will continue to spread
And effect us all for at least another lifetime
Vale Sir Terry
