After Life

Vintage Words

There is this huge bulletin board
posted on eternity for the dead to keep
tally. Whenever a living person
remembers something about them
a great mark is drawn next to their
name and trumpets (or the after

So, make a list and let the dead
have their day - Curses or love
it makes no never mind. To be
remembered is the thing.
