It gave husband such a big thrill

So drastically varied

That now he is buried on hill

      Buried, you say, Martin?

      That is what I read.

      Gee, I really do hope

      That he was already dead.

      So, I have just one question. How much debt the poor guy himself create if the debt was so drastically reduced upon his rather unfortunate demise?

      I love this. Simple, and yet provocative with so much meaning.

      So true, to worry about tomorrow when one barely knows/appreciates today.
