We Buy To Give Away 1997

 

       We Buy To Give Away

We buy to give away –

To use awhile and give away.

It has to be so, since we die.

Then

where go all the things we buy?Someone

gets. We’re forced to share.What we buy cannot come to where

We’re going. Why not jump the gun,

Be seen as Mister Niceguy? –

Really be one?

Who knows if the gived –

Hereafter spoken of as gift –

Affects the state of death;

Conditions after the last breath?

In any case, it’s practical to simplify,

Dispersing goods before you die.

Remember what it is I’ve said:

Before – not after – you are dead.
