The Dying Man

tired of the etiquette
of Death.

Family huddled round
his bed,

and, a fractious bunch,
quarreled. At least
the males.

Hired a stand-in
over the internet,
competent old

who did the expiring
bit with some

The women who shushed
the angry men away
were emotionally

by this being who
had the verve and wit
the real passer lacked.
As Fate

would have it, actor croaked!
No living relatives, so
the primary leaving
man had

him buried as

Now in the interior room
of the wreck of
the house

how he
watches Jeopardy
in peace!

Panasonic painting
an oddly leer-
ing face.
