Death

I'm afraid I'll have to decline
Based on lack of information
I've not received any brochures,
Even on the destination

I understand one of policies
Is that our bodies we do not keep,
But I've had mine for awhile,
And without it I'd feel incomplete

If I knew a little more,
I might reconsider
Are you on Facebook, Skype, maybe Twitter ?

I think we deserve to know a little more,
I think it's only fair.
Can we take one carry on bag ?
Can we go in pairs ?

How do I text without a face ?
Will my picture on Facebook be an empty place?

So again I'm declining your offer of death
It may work for some,
But for me I don't think it's best

Tanis, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
