Wouldn’t Get My Money Back


pathetic thing is
arrangements were made
in good faith and I
rashly disappeared...

exactly like paying a fare –
or personal insurance for
funeral expenses then failing
to turn up for the event

could easily understand
executors diverting the funds
elsewhere – if ever
they could agree

the dilemma remains in check;
I’d rather not turn up dead –
but I wouldn’t get my money
back either way
