Heaven is in the graveyard




Heaven has its cheap seats

One really ought to care

Where they place your body

And who you will be near


If you have no money  

And they chuck you in the ground

You might find dodgy people

Are living all around


But if they do not spare the cost

And bury you in style

I am sure that special kingdom

Will be closer to your smile


Please let me take my pride with me

“O Lord” I do beseech

Don’t leave me haggling like the rest

.............but simply out of reach


Perhaps the fire I should consume

To help me on my way

So all the little worms

Will leave me just the way


I want to be remembered.
