heard on the wire

Day 24 — a song I’d like played at my funeral

If only to see the look on the faces of the mourners.

They’re gonna inform the police chief
Who’ll breathe a sigh of relief
He’ll say I was a malanderer, a badlander and a thief
When I go

They’ll interview my teachers
Who’ll say I was one of God’s sorrier creatures
They’ll print informative six-page features
When I go
