Today we mourn the passing of a little alien friend
who lived his life in a test tube , until the very end.
His arrival brough such joy, we watched him at the start,
hatching from a white cocoon, to the flashing of his heart.
Daily feeds were given, his progress watched in awe,
and now he sits there lifeless, the heart it beats no more.
Say goodbye to Dodec , good memories will remain,
your resting tomb awaits you, your death was not in vain.
