Dead Man’s Wake

Flower bouquet

A black silk tie
to match the lining
of the coffin.
We’ve come to raise
a final glass
and say goodbye.

A gentleman?
No, not him.
More a prig, that one.
A self-absorbed liar,
a cheat, and a scoundrel.
So glad he’s dead.

Farewell, old friend
We’ll not miss you a whit.
