FUNERAL, OR IS IT?
Final farewell or is it?
Family, friends, and foes
Gathered with different motives.
Family, grieving, crying, and sobbing,
Friends, reminiscing and bidding byes.
Foes, inwardly celebrating exit of nemesis.
Final rites administered by clergy,
Coffin placed in metal container.
Wait, wait, wait, not so fast!
Metal container too big for grave,
Grave flanked by two earlier departed,
A relative on one side and stranger on other.
Earlier departed on either side of grave,
Have taken up too much space.
Metal container to be downsized,
Downsized by inches if not millimeters.
Space, precious even in the underworld.
Earthly problems have transferred to the underworld.
Final farewell rescheduled,
A case of postponed funeral.
Family, friends, and foes have
Another day to enjoy the company of
Their deceased dearly beloved.
Please measure your grave before death.
