Benefits Paid To Your Heavenly Account But The Devil Is In The Details - Poem by Ted Sheridan

I received a brochure the other day
On the front cover it read...in big bold black print
'Death Benefits'
Not in the least curious as to what they were
As I could think of possibly only one
I threw it in the final resting place of all my junk mail
And closed the lid

    Funny! Thanks for this...it caused a laugh...but, small item. Why did you throw it in with all the rest and close the lid? I hope it was a stove of some sort.Love it, love it, love it! xxElysabeth (Report) Reply

    The only benefit from death is not receiving such junk mail - although I guess that really means not having to deal with it personally. Liked your solution... Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

    Yeh. Maybe one of those bits of paper that just shouldn't be recycled. Intelligent thinking here as ever Ted. t x (Report) Reply
