Hypochondriac - Poem by Pete Crowther

Feeling bad tonight—
If the worst comes to the worst,
I’ll choose cremation.

Fearing the worst, see, I’ve penned this haiku
About death and my choice of cremation,
But I’m hoping it’s only the ‘flu.

    Don't cremate! These words would be marvellous on your tombstone (in a few decades, Peter!) (Report)Reply

    Wacky, funny, offbeat, original. Okay, I've run out of adjectives. (Report)Reply
