Unravel the mysteries of life,
a turbulent blend of infatuation and strife.
Every death holds a riddle,
the secrets of life hidden behind a casket.
Lies masked by a heinous fiddle,
the melodies of doom writhing in a basket.
Better not to be known,
filthy secrets best left alone.
So many things left behind,
what answers will your death bring?
Questions dug up from passing time,
what kind of rhymes will your funeral sing?
Sinister echoes from the great beyond,
how will the unwilling listeners respond?
