WHEN I DIE

WHEN I DIE
Wash me, wrap me, dig 
some earth 
Buy me a casket if you must
Love, when I die don't let 
the holy man touch me.

For the life of dirt I lead this 
here
Could a year of prayer wipe 
a slate
Engraved with gold and 
blood of theft and tears 
And greed and lust and hate
Many a foetus robbed of 
breath and
Seven nights and seven 
days of orgy
Drunkenness and rape
Of scooping icings off some 
cakes and
Much disdain for day of 
death?

Wash me, wrap me, dig 
some earth
Buy me a casket if you must
Love, when I die don't let 
the holy man touch me
Lest he contract a death of 
sin.
