Lilies, Roses and Tulips

 

The garden of Eden

Was the first funeral

We brought flowers to.

We bring flowers to funerals

Not as a gesture of love,

Or sympathy

 

But to feed our minds

With delusions.

Hoping that that the smell

Of daisies, roses and tulips will

Soothe away the pain.

We fool ourselves thinking

That we also are flowers;

That we live to be watered.

 

We bring flowers to funerals

For the reincarnation

of our egos.
