What In Tarnation

What in tarnation is reincarnation Could we come back as a piece of toast? Or do you think that death is just that The end, it's over, adios? Some get passionate about the subject But nobody knows for certain When we finally take our very last breath Is it really the final curtain? Here's my humble opinion on the subject It's over when the fat lady sings But I'm open to new ideas on the subject I wouldn't mind another fling Guess this old guy is much too realistic Watching the space shows on TV Can't believe how infinitesimal we are As insignificant as a little old flea So now you know my thoughts on the subject Hope we can still all be friends Maybe one day we'll find out the answer When we finally come to the end © Jack Ellison 2013

    Hi Jack, I hope you find the answer before you come to the end. We as humans tend to complicate the process. A gift is layed before us and we eithe accept it or we don't. Free will is both our blessing and our curse.
