His Funeral

That he planned his funeral is factual
And being a prankster quite actual
He prerecorded his voice
So when we kneeled on the joist
He said, "Hi there! Don't I look natural."

a funeral cortege was arife,

       his head bowed in prayer

Who was frightened to death by a brass band
We watched with dismay
As without delay
They buried her corpse in the band stand

Poetic Justice


There was an old man from Fontaine
Who walked with aid of a cane
One night he was mugged
By a wannabe thug
In the graveyard, the thug was lain

Just Ask and It Shall Be Given.

This Club Med lagoon really holds the heat,
with a beach front view and a coral suite.
But the best of all
as we watch it fall
is how they serve up each meal on a sheet!

Inane and Insane - Or Is It the Other Way Around

A sub human waste dump named Pence
Has thoughts that defy common sense 
And who wants this chump?
The assinine Trump
Who thinks with his rump so immense

What is something uproarious?
Her plan to be victorious
Who must to us speak
Since democracy’s Greek?
Hilarious Clintorius!

Boot Hill

Boot Hill is filled with remorse
From folks who could not stay the course
But a lot could be worse
Than a ride in an hearse
For a cowboy who ain't got no horse!

Poem Details | by Rob Metcalf |
Categories: funeral


a cocky young shooter called Bill
believed no one could rival his skill
alas it was liquor
that proved to be quicker
as they loaded him off to boot hill.

C'Est La Vie

My doctor’s warning is dour I say,
soon I could be lowered in clay,
so fat, sugar and salt,
hard liquor must halt -
I went to his funeral today.

Politicians Gather Money

One thing said about politicians
They can gather money like  morticians
Who bring dead for burial
That go to meet Gabriel
While politicians greet contributions

Glassy-Eyed Refraction

Glassy-Eyed Refraction

There was a sweet girl of pure glass.
Met a merry man with no class.
She’d shattered this bloke.
He drank til she broke.
Both attended funeral mass.

Hell Fires

Notre Dame erupted in fire
Ghosts gasped in the funeral pyre
For the Devil's horns
Are the Crown of Thorns
Held fast by an angelic choir

The Last Appointment

Jack came to the strangest conclusion,
which was: Time's an illusion.
He turned up very late
to each appointment and date 
till the day of his very own funeral.

Turning the Table

To weddings Ann went alone perplexed
Her love life her aunties favorite subject
So she turned a bit juvenile
At a great uncles funeral 
And exclaimed to the Aunties “you’re next” !

So Sad

There was a man who never shed a tear
The time he lived was many a year
So sad he never knew
What the tears would be due
Now at rest he lies and nobody here

On a Funeral Bier

On A Funeral Bier

Death my body did devour
As it occurred hour by hour,
End eventually would reach
When to God I now beseech
While lying on a funeral bier.

You should google funeral 
bier sometime.

There a premodern smile does emerge
From a hymn and a funeral dirge
For it e’er hails the skies
With its wise stony eyes 
Knowing heaven and earth soon must merge

'protest Arches'

Don't know who designed the Golden Arches
With way too many sugars and starches:
  Some say the fare's quite good,
  Others think it's junk food--
Yet no protest or funeral marches!

Covid-19 Dead End

Do stop your moaning, for Heaven's Sake!
You're not the first to bellyache!
You can scowl, growl, or howl
Or throw in the towel
But no one can go to your Wake!

Covid-19 Final Fling

I went to the morgue with a wreath
They told me she's down on the heath
My troublesome mask
Just ruined my task
Wreath in hand, I tossed down my teeth!
