Secret of the Mortician

The Secret of the Mortician

Dead, but I got eyes
Prepares my body at the morgue
Opens the chest
Drains the blood from its nudity
Admires my body before it decays

After The process of embalming
His hands run all over
I'm still dead
He's satisfied

The next day 
Writes an outstanding obituary 
I sit on display

    My cousin considered becoming a mortician, then she decided on another career... Your poem provokes chilling thoughts that this kind of thing can actually happen... A very creative poem, SKAT. I liked this dark write!

    Hey! What Can I say, I watch too many movies. The poem above was actually inspired by a movie. called "Contracted" LOL--------- It's a creepy job, somebodies got to do it. The movie opens with the Mortician getting off the body. This happens to be dark humor. Love YA! :)

    Ahhh! But so well written it belongs in a movie script! I can hear him now amongst the other morticians "Yup, I got lucky today boys!" Prefer the real thing myself!

    I would rather look at this as black humour! Rigidly riveting! Thank you Skat for reading my latest poem "Lexi". // paul

    SKAT.. This is creepy and makes me kind of sick on my stomach thinking a loved one may be groped this way. Powerful imagery will stay inside my head for a long while!
