A poem of the afterlife
--------------------------------------

Will we sit


around and talk


about the good old days--


when we wished


we were dead.


Or lie under


a perennially leering sun


resting on a bank


of amorphous clouds


sharing an eternal holiday


with a gathering of


long-lost relatives


in a circled array


for what you do in this life


you must pay.

great thoughts and it seems to be the theme around here...this stands up and out on its own
nice mixing of facts and what ifs
enjoyed this much!!!
