Wake Up And Smell The Coffin


 


This ghoulish little entry was sent to me by poet and songwriter, Dean Farnell. Thought you might have some fun with it, too. Info about the author follows.



 Wake Up And Smell The Coffin.

A Poem by DEAN FARNELL

Its so boring down the coffin shop
Where no-ones full of beans.
The deadly silence makes me tired
I know it sounds obscene.

I spend my days just cleaning
All the brass and wood veneer.
I'd like a more exciting job
I wish to make that clear.

The customers never argue
The radio's always off.
The smell of wax and polish
Has given me a cough.

Without a sound all morning
The days all seem mundane.
The clock is loudly ticking
Only 5 more hours remain.

When it gets to 3 o'clock
The coffins look inviting.
The silk and padded inlays
Look cozy and exciting.

The casket looked so comfy
So I took a little nap.
I hope the boss won't catch me
Or I'm sure to face the sack.

It not so bad and I'm relieved
That this coffin isn't mine.
I Suppose I should be grateful
For my dead end pastime.
