Funerals Are For The Living
If you are the social type
And enjoy meeting people,
Never miss a funeral in the graveyard;
Funerals are great occasions
To meet living people
In a peaceful surrounding…
I always had a lingering suspicion that
Funerals are actually
Meant for the living…
Graveyards provide great ambience
And throw in a surprise or two...
‘A fifty year old tomb of a five year old girl ‘
The dead never seem to age
Only the memory does…
What about that gentleman
Who you thought died long ago
Standing right next to you during the prayer
That Bomb In My Balcony
From my bed I could hear it swish through the air like a missile and
Drop in my balcony with a dull thud; I knew it was coming and
Eagerly awaited its arrival.
The little devil.
It rarely failed to explode; Its success rate is
Close to a hundred percent.
It is only a matter of time; A few seconds or
May be a few minutes when its
Deadly force would shatter my (peaceful?) world.
