Bones

Bundle up!

Bones

You will feel better
when your body’s just bones.
You’ll no longer be troubled
by birthday milestones.

You won’t have to wonder
if the pain in your chest
will be the coroner’s report
of your eternal rest.

There’ll be no more worrying
‘bout your hips getting wider.
You’ll no longer shriek
at the sight of a spider.

If you cling to your bones,
you might feel lightheaded.
And you’ll certainly find that
you’re quite dehydrated.

Perhaps you will miss
your collection of shoes,
the variety of snacks,
or selections of booze.

But you’ll no longer pay taxes
our fine government collects,
or be bothered by drivers
with substandard intellects.

No more waiting in line
to get the treasures you want.
No more lousy service
at a store or restaurant.

No more over-the-top ballads,
annoying ads,
or “I can’t believe
we bought that” fads.

All of these things
will belong to the past,
and you, my dear,
will rest in peace at last.
