Steve Irwin--Crazy croc guy

Steve Irwin of Animal Planet fame was killed this past weekend. Not as I would have expected he wasn't attacked by a croc but rather a sting ray. From what I've heard of news reports the accident that happened is like a billion to one of it happening. The stinger part of the sting ray nailed him right in the heart, pretty crazy. Well I've spent many hours watching the good old Crocodile Hunter and will continue to in the future. R.I.P. Stever

Goodbye Steve Irwin
Thought I knew you pretty well
You had the grace to jump on crocs
Hoping not to get hurt we could tell
You crawled out of nowhere
With khaki clothes in your hand
Became an Animal Planet icon
Then you would wrestle so crocs again

And it seemed to me that you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing when to say
“Crickey!” yet again
And I would have liked to know you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your crazy actions ever did
