Roast em and Toast em
By Larry Chadwick
It is SO true

He said we need to talk,
She saw it was no good to balk.
Eventually we will pass on,
What will you do with me when Im gone?

I know you could put me in a box,
And bury me with the rocks.
Or you could make me burn,
And then keep me in an urn.

She was willing to do what he asked,
To keep her promise when he passed.
She felt that he could do the same,
And roast her with a flame.

He was pleased that she would comply,
And do as he asked when he would die.
But he was not about to put her in an urn,
Her request, she should know, he would spurn.

Ultimately she did what she had said,
And cremated him when he was dead.
But now she did not know what to do,
Who would honor her wish when she was through.

I felt my duty to be an honorable son,
And promised her what I'd do when she was done.
There is nothing to worry about, mom, when you die,
Ill make sure that your butt will fry.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Well written.  I am not too sure how *Dark* this poem was suppose to be.  The last line made me smile though.  Thanks!!

for your 1st Dark Post

A friend, like a candle, is most needed in the darkness.

Dark Kisses,
I'm sure you are right. But it's as *Dark* as I get.

Larry, you always carry a flashlight into the DARK? LOL. I understand though, this is a dark subject, not easily written about.
You handled the dust carefully.

Dark humor?

I enjoyed....Welcome to Dark, Sir.

You could hurt me with your bare hands. You could hurt me using the sharp edge of what you say. JEWEL

Jen,
Thank you. LOL Pretty lame but as close to dark as I'll ever get.

I, too, was surprised to read you here, Larry.  And then, I found you sleeping with a nightlight.

Enjoyed the read.

Schenachie,
Not sure how I missed this response. But on the better late than never theory, thanks.
