The town supposedly came to mourn
but merely socialised on the lawn
Fancy dressed ladies to the occasion came
with tongues difficult to tame
Many a man from all over did come
& all you could hear was the stench of worldly hum
Just as an ignorant dog goes 'arf, arf'
the gathering merely joked and laughed
Never were they concerned over death
when the very next second could be their last breath
Duas were made as the deceased was laid down
only to be by the call of the cellphone drowned
So intense was his incessant chatter
that the few sane thought he was mad as a hatter
Back at the fun-a-ral house
people gorged themselves as would a louse
About the orphan heirs' share
who could a bit care?
A wonderful outing, the day was for all
I wonder what will happen on the day when they won't walk tall
and only worms on them will crawl
will they still have the courage to brawl and about the dunya drawl?
