a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

My Epitaph

Mindlovemisery's Menagerie
B&P Shadorma and Beyond – The Epitaph 
The challenge is to write our own epitaph.

Here's lies Gail
end of trail swinging
on the gates
heavenward
she's giving the angels hell
no surprise...it's Gail

Love it! Hmmm, what would mine be?

Hi, Jacqueline here -
Bored and scattered in life,
Burned and scattered in death.

LOL

This made me smile. Hopefully it wont be needed for a long time. At hospice training we were to write our own epitaph. Mine said something about my outreach work with the perennially pissed off, as I recall. LOL.

I love the quirkiness of this poem.

Susan Kane said...

That epitaph sounds very spot-on. I have absolutely no idea what mine would say. A variety of things, I suppose.

Truedessa said...

I am laughing now as that is one way to go a ball of fire until the end.

Mary said...

Loved the feisty attitude you have exhibited here! Made me chuckle though.
