Reality check


I want my soulmate back

But she’s not coming back

This I’ve been told on high authority

A view not shared by the majority

That when you are dead you are dead

Finis caput that’s all he said

Which I understand I do understand

But vis-à-vis the so-called Promised Land

It has also come to my attention

(Another argument for dissension)

Not only is she not coming back

And this to me is the real drawback

There will be no reunion

No spiritual communion

In a mythical heaven

Or a sanctum sanctorum.

Get it through your head

My source firmly said

Your “soulmate” is dead and gone

Get over it and move on

Live out your life as fate designed

Yo dude you won’t be far behind.
