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.
