To An Ante-Mortem Undertaker Who Embalms Me In Verse

John Bannister Tabb

 Next Poem          

If I were dead
And yet had read
The praise you have applied,
Methinks I'd be
More speedily
A body mortified.
And would that now
I might avow
A spirit quite becalmed;
But, truth to tell,
I seem to smell
The thing you have embalmed.
