Of Death and Dying

Pay the ferryman twice, just to be
sure you do not end
up haunting the waters of hell’s only river.

Place remaining coins over each eye to show
your life had worth. Subsequently, purpose
may seemingly echo with shadows of pointlessness.

Immortal
gods do not lack
a sense of vindictive humor.

editors note:

With immortal gods our mortal construct, the joke’s on us. – mh
