If come you must,

To weep my dust, 

Then be divine

And bring some wine.

And sit you down

Without a frown,

And drink a toast,

To me, your host.

For life is but 

A passing taste,

Inside our gut

Before we waste.

But afterlife 

There is no strife,

So make the most

To love us all,

And pray my ghost

In God enthralls.
