English Poetry

Some will come for the fresh air…

Some will come for the free food…

Some will come for a walk…

Some will come to meet someone…

Some will come for the sake of old times…

Some will come to butter up someone important…

Some will come as a formality…

Some will come be’coz others are…

Some will come for the sake of old times…

Some will come for the sake of it…

Some will come becoz someone will ask them to…

But what i wonder is that  , how many will come as true friends , to my funeral ?

    Kshitij,
    nice. Realistic.
    It’s a question many ask but if you think about it funerals are for the living so no point worrying about attendance,

    Like the idea of the poem & the poem too
    Some true friend may drop out if he feels he will not be able to stand a very dear friend’s funeral ….!

        If you want to avoid the situation detailed in the poem, pray for less people and only friends to attend… 🙂
