Be Late for Your Funeral: A Poem
When it's about your funeral, make sure you arrive late
think of bunch of good excuses, like too busy living
and tell those future mourners to patiently wait
as it makes no sense to rehearse grieving.
There is so much more for you to do
and certainly more interesting than dying
even being bored and boring all around you
is the way more fun than chorus of those crying.
"Today is the first day of the rest of your life"
so they are saying and we should all agree
therefore let's act today defying anything rife
enjoying every second to the highest degree.
Let's deny that protocol of aging until we're done
with all available heartbeats, smile and song
seeing in everything a source of some fun
making rest of journey sweet and long.
Arrangement for funeral, or arrangement for living
is deciding over length of future and over its fate
but more than anything in your heart's believing
should be resolve to come to your funeral late.
