Pauper's Grave


Don't bother with this body,

I'm no longer here.

It belongs in a pauper's grave,

my instructions are clear.

Please don't call anyone,

even if they are next of kin.

If they came when I was alive,

I would gladly invite them in.

I received no assistance,

from my family or friends.

No reason to help me now,

for my life came to an end.

There is no need for a funeral,

and no tears to shed.

No need for an obituary,

to say I'm dead.

Now you know my message,

so don't be sad.

God has called me home,

you should be glad.
