Tony Hunt

A friend of mine from long ago

Has died

In a nursing home in Birkenhead

On Merseyside

A fanatical supporter of the Reds

And a Red to boot

Priest Redemptorist


Spent his life in Africa

Most of

Came home some years ago

Retirement age

Retired across the Mersey

Where life had first begun

Now his days are over

Setting sun


He had a fierce appetite

For life

Loved his food his football

Loved a pint

And had a love for people

Wherever found

A faith so pure and simple

Holy ground
