Funeral Of Death
AS (20 Nov.1950 / Yerevan, Armenia)

Funeral Of Death

Last night I dreamed that I was in heaven
And witnessed Life arguing heatedly with Death
Life claimed to be the primary ruler in Eden
From the very beginning, donating health

Death said he was the monarch of both start, and end
That everybody came to him after biting the dust
Was omnipotent, and could anyone to glory send
Ever reaping heads, and never had a bust

Then Life threatened him with total extermination
And cast unearthly light on the frightened Grim Reaper
I saw the funeral of Death, and felt intense elation
His eternity-box was laid on a boat, and I was its skipper
