Bowled Away



Some acting roles are hard work

While others are a peach

And Doug showed lots of talent

When playing William Beech

A refugee from London

Who stole the heart of Tom

The boy had lacked all kindness

From his hard-hearted Mom

Doug strode the stage just like his Dad

His presence caught the eye

His character was brought to life

He made us laugh and cry

But when Rose Bowl award was made

He was up in the Lakes

Yet as they say in showbiz, Doug,

In life, those are the breaks.
