The Royal Flush:
(For Duane)


A Funeral Poem by the nineteenth century transcendentalist, Henry Waldo Liverworth


That day is etched upon my brain
The death of my beloved Duane.
I found him there, simply floating
So sad to see him stiff and bloating
I pressed against him with my ear
But there was no heartbeat I could hear


My heart was broken, tears were shed
They landed on his little head
I put around him a little blankie
Kissed him goodbye (then blew my hankie)
We lit some candles, and gathered round
I held him up, then flushed him down


So much sorrow, so much pain
To watch his life go down the drain
It hit me then, and does each day
That we’ll all go much the same way
Through a long dark tunnel
into the Endless Sea
That’s what will come
Of you and me


We’re not to fear, we’re not to dread
But if you were born, you will be dead
So live each day full
For each of us
Soon or late
Will get the Royal Flush
