Funeral Speech - Επικήδειος Poem by Kostas Lagos

Funeral Speech - Επικήδειος

Rating: 4.9

A big 'thank you'

to all you kind people

Who came to pay tribute

to the deceased.

It would be great if you

had paid a visit

when this person was alive

Ένα μεγάλο 'ευχαριστώ'

σε όλους εσάς τους καλούς ανθρώπους

Που ήρθατε τιμή να αποτίσετε

στον αποθανόντα.

Τι υπέροχο θα ήταν αν

τον είχατε επισκεφθεί

όσο ήταν ζωντανός

Excellent satire. A flaw in human character is brilliantly captured. A wake up call to all us. To my Poem List.
