Mike’s Demise

At the graveside
the eulogy was read
words of appreciation spewed;
flowers – the most expensive
of the season –
laid around the catafalque
to show respect.
Tears flowed,
if it was a ribbon
it’ll be measured in miles.
But all this while
when Mike was alive
love towards him was meagre
attention stingily given.
Standing there, holding tears
Kanye’s line hit me:
“People never get the flowers –
while they can still smell ’em.”
