The Undead Poem by Practicing Poetess

The Undead

Rating: 5.0

It was his Uncle's funeral
The young boy went to the viewing.
As stony-faced adults filed past,
There was some trouble brewing.

It seems the Uncle wasn't dead
Which only needed proving.
The nephew called out from his seat,
'Look everyone, he's moving! '

Some ladies fainted on the spot,
It took a lot to calm them.
It seems the undertaker had
Forgotten to embalm him!

Haha Ray! (If only) . One day, we'll be even more alive than we are today, in a perfect Paradise. What a day that will be! Looking forward to it.
