A little something which I did NOT write, but wish I had. I have no idea how old it is, but I came across it over twenty years ago. I just happened to be a life insurance salesman at the time, and it was quite appropos.

Some might consider it another good reason for one to adopt a "Carpe Diem" philosophy for life.

Hope you enjoy!



A VITAL STATISTIC

 

 

"HE WAS A VERY CAUTIOUS MAN

WHO NEVER ROMPED OR PLAYED;



HE NEVER SMOKED, HE NEVER DRANK,

NOR EVER KISSED A MAID.






AND WHEN HE UP AND PASSED AWAY,

HIS INSURANCE WAS DENIED,



FOR, SINCE HE HADN'T EVER LIVED,



THEY CLAIMED HE NEVER DIED !"

If he didn't have
a wife,
or any children,
or any maids;
then he didn't need
any insurance.

The States
will take care of his burial.
