Who Gets the Dog?

Itís funny what happens
    when you think you could die.
Do you cry
    or
        do you try
            to
                be
                    calm?

Itís funny what happens
    when you think you could die.
Why wasnít I nicer
    to him
        or to her?

Should you
    kiss your spouse
        clean the house
            take a walk
                talk to Mary?

Read a book
    maybe cook?
Empty a drawer
    mop the floor
        go to the store?

Oh, no!
    Who gets the dog?

Itís funny what happens

        Quick! Throw stuff out!
            Like that bright red lipstick
                nobody wears today.
                    Make it easier for those left behind?
                        Or should I just pray?

Get a will!
    Maybe Phil
        would
            like
                the dog!

Who gets the dog?
    Should I tell?
        Hell!
            I might be around for awhile.
