Michael Edwards

OWN GOAL

 

 

 

With marketing skills

that won’t  pay  the bills

our funeral parlour

should try harder.

 

By their door upon the wall

available for one and all

they’ve thoughtfully placed a

state-of-the-art defibrillator.

    Oops! Erm, will they use it if anyone needs it?!
    In dark humour, I said to someone: 'Oohh, I shouldn't try suicide; it's very bad for your health!'
    You know Mrs (or Mrs) D. Fibb Berle-Lator?

      You're dead right they will.
      Married to Inf-Lator I do believe.

        Erm what can you never try twice? Suicide! Well - I mean successul suicide. I'm getting too 'dark' now. Well, put the light on then, Orchi! lol.

        Wonderful funny write Michael.My first laugh of the day, thank you.

        I parked at our church yesterday and there is now a defibrillator there in one of the disabled parking bays!
        I knew christianity didn't work!

          It's ouside a Co-op funeral parlour in our town - always smile when I pass by.

          ah the abundant irony of reality: always a defibrillator around after we've gone,
          though hardly a peaceful breathe taken while we are busily scavenging
          for those short lived treasures of our lives,
          brilliantly quirky write, easily one of my favourites
