'Don’t Take A Fence' by Paul Curtis.
My uncle John the fence died
When I heard I felt quite sorry
It was poetic justice though
As he fell off the back of a lorry

This lovely little poem needs some explaining for non-English readers. In Wales 'John the fence' would be a man who erected fences; in England and elsewhere it would be a man who received stolen goods.
And in British English (I'm not sure about elsewhere - please let me know), something that 'fell off the back of lorry' means it was stolen so I can sell it to you cheaply!
