Do I Have To Die?

0

 

Do I have to die,

For all to struggle

For a line of the eulogy

Showing how good I was

While it was always wars

Of words some backbiting

While the rest just biting

 

 Do I have to die,

Of hunger,

For you to fill all baskets to my place

To come and feast

While even the least

Of your leftovers never found my place

ojw

 

 

Do I have to die,

Of pneumonia

Because I was bold

To withstand the cold

To be bought not just a suit,

An expensive suit?

 

Do I have to die,

In a roofless mansion

Or a zero-walled bungalow

So you rehabilitate my home

Then invest in a casket

Or at least tile they yard?

 

Do I have to die,

In my peasantry

Hopeless, cashless and worthless

For a hopeful cash drive for a worthy course

To be held with pleasantries

For a happy send-off?

 

Do I have to die,

Of loneliness

Where no one visited

For all to flock

Jam in competition to visit

A home no longer mine?

 

Do I have to die,

Ignored all along

Where no one thought

I had a reason to live

For all to tweet of the loss

With all fake-teared faces?
