modern grief is rubbish

If I get knifecrimed,
Think only this of me:
I dont want a Facebook group
Set up in my memory.

Send all your platitudes,
empty or otherwise,
to me in a letter,
while I am still alive,
So I can reflect contentedly,
On how you’ll always remember me,
and how fully I have lived my life to date,
etc. etc.

And If I get credit crunched to death,
dont send your love to my family by SMS,
come to the funeral,
for some old fashioned grief.
And as they lower my body
Into a very real grave,
Say a little goodbye
in your best black suit and tie.
