Funeral of the Boss

Scaring silence in
Intermittent scream cracked.
Gather kith and kin ;
Sacred chants wash them with the body ;
And the schedules are hacked.

Two cotton pieces
In the nostrils inserted
For the under worm princes
To play with ;
And envy in pity stranded.

Millions of rupees
Were not enough ; now satisfied
With a shroud worth a hundred rupees.
This silence and serenity
Are not fitted.

Myriads of reflections holy
In the minds gathered,
But only till the body
Is taken to the grave.
Then all the same pastures returned.

    Death is a sad event for all...Each in their own way grieve..I don't know if this is the death of your employer or just a write about the topic of death of one who was an employer and wealthy but was very descriptive and expressive work..Your comments on my work lifted my spirits this morn..Sara

    Very profound, Fabiyas. It doesn't matter how much money we have, we can't take it with us when we die. It seems few people will truly miss "the boss" you described here. I was captivated by the last line about the pastures. Did you ever read "Grass" by Carl Sandburg? I'll never forget it and his statement in the poem is similar to the one you made here. An awesome poem for my favorites. Thanks so much for sharing this one! Love, Carolyn
