Final Request of a Poet

by Kirby Michael Wright

Few read anymore, so engraving my poem on a marker is a waste. Buying a plot's pricey too.
Cremation? A bargain if I catch a deal making an advanced purchase.

Feed my ashes to that giant Norfolk with the ocean view. Pray for my soul during feeding? Forget
it. Instead, play "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen loud enough for the angels to hear. Don't forget
to flap your wings when circling my tree.
