A poem, keeping death in perspective
 



PERSPECTIVE 


DEATH CAN BE SO BORING
I DREAD MY FINAL DAY
EVERYONE JUST STANDING AROUND
NOT KNOWING WHAT TO SAY.


HERE I AM, AT PARLOR LOST
A FRIEND LAYING IN A COFFFIN
KNOWING HE CAN'T TALK BACK TO ME
A CONDITION I WISHED FOR OFTEN.


NOW I WOULD BEG HIM TO SPEAK
OR GET UP, TAKE A WALK
NO USE A WISHING WASTE
THE MAN CAN'T EVEN TALK.


EVERYONE WHO CAME TODAY
ALREADY WANT TO LEAVE
THEY'RE TRYING TO HIDE IT WELL
BUT ME THEY CAN'T DECEIVE.


EVEN I, HIS VERY BEST FRIEND
WISH THE SERVICE DONE
I'M QUICKLY BEING BORED TO DEATH
PARDON ME, MY PUN.


SO WHEN I DIE I HAVE ARRANGED
BURY ME THAT VERY DAY
THEY ALWAYS SAY "A BETTER PLACE"
SO HURRY ME ON MY WAY.


SAVE MY RELATIVES, AND MY FRIENDS
ALL THAT STANDING AROUND
LET THEM KNOW ABOUT MY DEATH
AFTER I'M IN THE GROUND.
