WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

How dare you wake me! - Yes - We share a name -

But mine has not been uttered in an age.

It’s just your pastime – You want to know –

To you, I’m information from a page.

 

A census entry – A Birth – A Death

And who and when and where I wed.

You think you know me? While you’ve the chance –

You might choose blessed ignorance instead!

 

My epitaph reads - “Do Not Disturb!”

Now – Leave me to eternal rest –

Or – Like Macbeth, you’ll “Sleep no more.”

Till God our Father takes you to his breast.
