A thirty-second montage

of your life

that even forgot to mention

you had a wife.

A lifetime’s accomplishments

edited to fit

so that they could show

some celebrity shit.

What you achieved

took hard work

but that’s not important 

because you never twerked.

A life lived with

dignity and grace

now has been sent

to its eternal space.

I hope history

will be kinder to you,

then these fools

who haven’t a clue.

An intellect

is frowned upon now

less important

then the shape of an eyebrow.
