Poem: Incongruous

Incongruous

Casket lay before
A mass of quiet grieving
Stillness broken by
Balloons at a funeral

I had a conversation with some people about 3 or 4 months ago and the line "Balloons at a funeral" came to me. I wrote it on the back of my pad and finally got around to it. I thought you would like this one.

The last line is a sure keeper. I'll remember you and your site for it. ;)

The title is most apt, by the way.

I also enjoyed the previously posted limerick, and "An Ode to Sarah Palin" (priceless). Cheers.

Thank you, s.l. I will look your way, too!

We had a bottle of "Bushmills" at my dad's wake.
