When the Gorillas Take Command
Don't burn me and plant me in an urn.
Don't wrap me in bandages and seal me in a coffin.
Dress me in white lace and make me a sarcophagus water bed.
Heat it with some atomic power--forever.
Line it with red satin sheets and a down pillow.
I want an alpaca blanket and overhead light.
Plant no flowers, but burn sandalwood incense daily.
Put Papa's books beside me.
Wrap me with Neruda,
Don't forget my glasses plus a spare.
Let me read my way into eternity...
