Preparing for death

Your sure future
Dug deep down there
That’s death, death, death.
What is life’s worth?

So we shall be prepared
Our body’s to be shared
A common meal for worms
In no unsavory terms

Prepare for what you say?
By golly light of day
None other than to die
That’s you, him, her, and i

What should we do
To live and die true:
See with your mind’s eye
Die before you die

To see yourself as dead
First will fill you with dread
Then attitudes will change
Pri-rities rearrange

You will soar on wings
Beyond worldly things
And so by and by
You’re ready to die
