please mark the calendar for them…

in a note to god
marked
for thine eyes only
i have requested
as humbly as i could
that my death
be placed on a schedule
that my friends could see
this would assure
that those wishing to attend
my funeral party
would have ample time
to shower
shave the appropriate areas
have a beer or two
in my behalf
and then slowly traverse
to the appointed place
well dressed
without any stress
i mean
it’s not like
i’d be going
anywhere
