IN DEAD EARNEST

If I should die before I wake All my bone and sinew take Put them in the compost pile To decompose a little while

Sun, rain and worms will have their way Reducing me to common clay All that I am will feed the trees And little fishes in the seas

When corn and radishes you munch You may be having me for lunch The excrete me with a grin Chortling, There goes Lee again

‘Twill be my happiest destiny To die and live eternally
