Moving Up In The World - Poem by Roger Costello

Each time a relative passes away,
I move up the Death List that very same day.
Month after Month I move nearer the top.
There is only one way It will ever stop.

As I become the Oldest on the family tree,
I can feel all there eyes looking at me.
They dont mean to do it,
but do it they do.

Just wait and see when It happens to you..
