When I was Alive

When I was alive, I had a family.  I had a job.  I raised a kid.

When I was alive,  I ate good food.  I had good taste.  That’s what I did.

When I was alive, my job was great.  The pay was good.  Enjoyed it a lot.

Now that I’m dead, I float around.  Near my marked grave.  Watched myself rot.

When I was alive, I went on trips.  Where it was fun.  The best of spots.

When I was alive, I wore good clothes.  The finest threads.  Some full of dots.

When I was alive, I had good goals.  I had good dreams.  Was totally driven.

Now that I’m dead, I scare some souls, they have good screams, running from the unliving.
