Death is a joke-
Until it’s not.

Cheap humor,
low shot-
a tragedy.

It’s so simple to think,
the end”.
Less simple to remember
he went to sleep
and didn’t wake up.”

A mother will cry
for a dead son or daughter-
While another
complains on the ones
she still has.

That’s the joke!
The funny part-
The punchline-

It’s the end.
So simple,
until it’s not.
