Genghis: An obituary

This is the obituary
Of Ghengis, my beloved flea
A member of my family
Whose passing was calamity.

Now, Genghis hatched a tiny flea
As little as the eye could see
but nonetheless would grow to be
A special flea, a prodigy.
He grew into maturity
Comporting with alacrity.
Possessing perspicacity,
He very soon was said to be
A flea of notoriety.

He went to university
to study Greek philosophy
and, noted for sagacity,
did supplicate for PhD.
He lived his life with energy,
Detested mediocrity,
Achieved his dreams financially,
Then grew to love philanthropy.

But swiftly came calamity.
When flying at velocity
In failing visibility,
He ran into an apple tree
And smashed his nasal cavity.
We rushed him down to casualty
The surgeons battled valiantly
But sadly it was not to be,
For God had set his spirit free.

We took him to the cemetery
His death was such a travesty.
There was no call for autopsy.
The cause of death was clear to see:

Phlebitis.
