TOTALLY BRILLIANT and far from subject abuse, it seems to me. This has a light-hearted feel but really casues me to reflect on how precious it is to STILL be perched precariously above instead of six feet under God's green earth and I think you have crafted the balance and attitude of this poem EXQUISITELY, Patrick. Pat yourself on the back - this sort of success is hard to pull of when it grapples with such delicacies, but you do so with great panache and aplomb. Much appreciated, thanks! :)) xx
I really like worms; they do wonders in my garden. But Alas, I've left my wife instructions to cremate my remains, and to periodically sprinkle a few of my ashes in our many cat litter boxes so my felines know I'm still around.
