    DEATH OF A POET
    By Andre Austin

    When a poet thinks death is near
    He starts writing everything with no fear
    Wrap it all up without a tear
    Entrust his works to those who care

    No footprints in the sand dune or lake
    Censorship was my awful fate
    Banned from many websites
    With lying snitches with prison like kites

    After I’m cold in the casket
    My Facebook will burn like a gasket
    With my digital imprints
    Will be deleted from all print

    Only newspaper mircofilm will say
    Or the census report after a long delay
    Will report this poet and writer had a certificate of birth
    I told the truth and that’s what its worth

    Eulogy: U can sing
    Obitiary: U can Bring
    Last rites: can be a sting
    Last words: need no angel’s wings

    AMEN
