To the Family of the Departed

Ring the bells of the church
Call for the Imam to come
Open the pages of Torah
a funeral has begun!

Don’t be afraid
The deceased lies at rest
In the silent mortuary.
It’s but the smell that remains

Ready an obituary
Or don’t, it’s unnecessary
The dead is deaf
And no audience is left
For only a friend was to come
But a friendship has been choked dead
