Looking up old friends from the last century, on Facebook

Who's a granny?
Who's a tranny?
Who's dead? (Many).
Who's gone bonky?
Who's gone wonky?
Who loves donkeys?
Who's in Dungarvan?
Lives in a caravan?
Who's religious?
Who's litigious?
Who's contagious?
Who's outrageous?
Who's got cleavage?
Who's got herbage?
Who loves their pets?
Who pets their loves?
Who gets upset?
Who just forgets?
Who looks older?
Who looks colder?
Who looks brighter?
Who's a fighter?
Who's a quitter?
Who's a hitter?
Who seems bitter?
Who has fairies?
Who has caries?
Who's retiring?
Who's conspiring?

And here is all I found,
While I snooped around:
If they're not in the pub with sprogs,
They're out in the fields with dogs.

Where are the fire extinguishers, the hoses, the sprinklers?

The great trees, tall-masted,
heave away and sail by,
while I, who cannot move,
reach out and sway to them,
as they follow their green way.
For now it's Summer.
