Read This At My Wake - Poem by Masharia kanyari

Tell them I dined with lions,
And slept with snakes,
I suffered from greed and Vanity,
That foolish pride kept me together,
For I was human in more ways than one,
Do not paint a vivid picture,
Of a perfect man that never was

Let them know,
That I charmed the universe,
Into dealing me with better cards,
So I deserved every good thing that I got,
I caroused with women I barely recall,
Told them I loved them to have my way,
Breaking my heart in the process because I knew,
I would be telling that lie again,

Please make it clear,
Of my profound respect for my nuclear family,
For loving and providing unconditionally,
You also need to aknowledge,
My illustrious and mendacious friends,
Who I valued less than my sophisticated foes,
In many ways I had a perfect life,
Please read this at my wake...
