    Dig no grave for me
    No wood and brass
    No 5 by 8 by 3
    In a brick furnace
    I want to burn
    Don't spend too much
    On a fancy urn

    Ashes to ashes
    Dust to dust
    Take them to Africa
    That is my wish
    That is a must

    Rent a helicopter
    In the land of Zimbabwe
    Where my ancestors listen
    To my homecoming call
    Drop my remains over Victoria Falls

    The Kololo people will welcome me
    A son returns
    They will gather to see
    As my ashes float downward
    To the river Zambezi

    The power of the falls will scatter some ashes
    Swirling them about in the sweet African air
    But they too will touch down
    In the land of my dreams
    Then I will know of rest
    My sprit will be free
    Do this
    Please
    Do this for me

    BE

    I'm feeling this! And I do hope and pray these instructions aren't needed for many, many, many years. :)

    just love it, Poet!
