I hate when they ask
you to write your own obit.

Sure, get me to do your dirty work,
rub my own nose in it
while I’m at it!

I will answer a different question,
rewrite the game, beat a different drum.

Instead of what I did,
I will enumerate all that I did not,
publish that as a logia of anthos.

My final wish?
To be cremated, then reassembled.
