The Final Word

 I still want my cause of death to read; of old age and self-indulgence, but just in case………….

Before they lay me,

in the ground,

and with a mind,

still somewhat, sound,

or per chance,

my body, burned,

I say, to all concerned.


I leave, all I have,

to my dear wife,

all I’ve garnered,

in my life,

unless, it’s proven,

it was she,

who, hastened up, the end of me.
