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.
