Pseudo Death

compose a poem about death
even if you hate to discuss it

try to become funny so as not to
be drowned by the theme

crack jokes if you want
as long as they don't veer away

euphemism or irony
choose which one will work

the more honest it is
the more poetic it becomes

don't over do it
over sentimentalizing should be absent

a poem about death
should always be happy

jovial as the innocence of the children
they should talk about death

but never mourn for it,
never mourn for it

i know how you hate about death
so now

let me ask you a question
have you written your death poem

as spontaneous as mine?
or you just mourned over it

to the point that death
is still present in the last stanza

like how a sentence ends with
a period.
