Our old friend Bobby

Has anyone seen my old friend Bobby?
Is it true what I just read?
I thought I saw him walkin' up over the hill
With old Jimmy, Charlie and Fred.

R.I.P. Bob Keeshan aka Captain Kangaroo, 27 Jun 1927 - 23 Jan 2004

Thanks to phawkwood, chevronsha, and Dick Holler (along with Bob Dylan and Emmylou Harris) for inspiring the above.

I wrote this the day Schulz died and it seems fitting tonight.

(Changing shoes in silence and sitting somberly with Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose, and King Friday)

He was a man, take him for all in all,
I shall not look upon his like again.

-Hamlet, I.ii.184-185
