What should it mean

I sold my soul to an elderly man

In a dinner last week

And today he’s at my door knocking

Asking for a refund O so politely

I slammed the door in his old face

In my house I took a seat sat there

And thought about being worth nothing

Then I had a heart attack there shortly

After that I had a heart transplant

Not nearly a year later they repossessed

The very heart that they had placed into my chest

In the end they had a lovely funeral for me

They even held a favorably memorable wake

And the old man was finally able to collect

On my damaged soul the refund was the end

That must have been some dinner. too much cholesterol will give you a coronary failure and father time will eventually catch up. :)

We pay so high a price to die in such tiny little way, when it's so cheap to be gone in a big way...mortal fools, and we pay third parties to name stars after us when NASA doesn't even own the heavens...mortal fools.

AP, I do so enjoy your style, wonderful poem. ~ Laura
