The Dead Were Not Actually



many moons ago


let the real truth be told


the undertaker would attach a bell on the toe of the dead


right before they were actually embalmed


if the bell would ring


the dead were actually alive


many times before those alive were buried dead


until that glorious bell on the toe


There was a tale of a tramp that visited my grandma


it was thought that he was dead


until the bell rung on his toe to let them know


although those many years have passed


still having a great reason to grasp


my grandma would share he story


although today there is no longer a bell


I have such a great story to tell
