Funeral food – Kate Campbell

Charles Cowling

AuntAunt Fidelia
Brought the rolls
With her
Green bean casserole
The widow Smith
Down the street
Dropped by a bowl
Of butter beans
Plastic cups
And silverware
Lime green
Tupperware everywhere
Pass the chicken
Pass the pie
We sure eat good
When someone dies

Funeral food
It’s so good
For the soul
Funeral food
Fills you up
Down to your toes
Funeral food
Funeral food

There sits mean
Ole Uncle Bob
Gnawing on a corn
On the cob
And who’s that
Walking
Through the door
I don’t think
I’ve ever
Seen him before
Isn’t it a shame
She passed away
She made
The best chocolate cake
Let’s hit the line
A second time
We sure eat good
When someone dies

Everybody’s here
For the feast
But come next week
Where will they be
