Dad´s Army

On the Milky Way, a black cloud appeared,
not dark as the night, but as a whole year
of winter nights put together and blended  
with stygian thoughts of a suicidal dictator.

Then slowly the cloud began to dissipate,
became whispery as Fidel Castro´s beard
…And there, on blue silk, a newborn star,
unexciting at first but it grew stronger by 
the galaxy minute - which lasted a bit longer
than the earth - till it one day sparkled with
pride especially around Christmas.   
The moment a new star is born, an old star
lights up, like northern light, for so to fall
into perpetuity, and I shall not see my old
friend Clive Dunn again.
