Thread: Dance on my grave.

  1. #1

    Dance on my grave.

    We have a thread that is for writing an elegy, most people seemed to equate that with an epitaph, it is actually a sad poem, so epitaphs are often both. An epitaph is the wording on a tombstone, or praise of someone dead.

    Anyway this thread is inspired by Spike Milligan and Ezra Pound who wrote their own epitaphs.
    ‘Dúirt mé leat go raibh mé breoite’, or ‘I told you I felt ill’, for Spike and;
    ‘Here lies the body of Ezra Pound
    Lost at sea and never found.’ for Ezra

    So how about writing your own epitaph, what would you like on your gravestone?

    Here is mine, though I might think of alternatives.

    Here is the grave of Olly
    Remember his life and be jolly,
    This is an invite, so grab the chance
    Step on my grave and have a dance.

    Under this stone lies Firemajic
    her death was hot and very tragic
    she played with firrrre! And she got burned..
    F%#$..that chick just never learned..
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....

    Bury me, I know if I’m eaten,
    Entropy is not really beaten
    But it slows down the process
    Leeching out by osmosis,
    Rather than all at once with cremation.
