Will I Like Being Dead?

Deal, Stranger!

Sometimes I wonder if I'd like being dead.
After all, I suppose that we'll all someday have to.
I often speculate that I will--
No more responsibility, you know,
And no more work!--nonetheless,
I remain uncertain about the comforts of hell
And the pains of physical passing
That may or may not be a big deal.


  1. I have similar thoughts (as infrequently as I can manage).....about my own death, I hasten to add, not about yours. Maybe as Tom Lehrer used to sing

    "We'll all go together when we go...."

    Although that'd be a truly dreadful scenario, at least we'd feel we'd not be missing anything.

  2. And we wouldn't have to think whether anyone was going to miss us?


Abandon hope, all ye who enter here! (At least put on your socks and pants.)
