From childhood days,
In my culture...
Our forefathers taught us...
The death of someone
"Was time to mourn and hunger"
A time to reflect and re-unite the family
To cater for orphans, widows and widowers
Not to party
But a time to limit what you eat
To show love for the departed soul
Naturally, people lack appetite for food
Due to the loss
Now funeral is time to grab money deceitfully
For unnecessary extravagant food
Funerals - time to reflect and grief
Is now time to eat lavishly
and fraudulently make money
At the expense of others?
Sad, mean and despicable!
