A Meditation on Life: Epitaphs

Here lies Frank Joseph Peter…
one of billions of homo sapiens
who was the predictable expression
of his genetic and cultural endowment.

Here lies Frank Joseph Peter…
a decent enough chap,
but he missed so much
because he never did a single thing that scared him.

Here lies Frank Joseph Peter…
He left behind a nice house, a brand-new car,
and huge bank account,
and never took that trip to Africa he always dreamed of.

Here lies Frank Joseph Peter…
He spent a third of his life sleeping,
a third of his life working,
and the rest of his life watching television.

Here lies Frankie Peter…
a child of the universe
who had some balls and had some fun.
And the world is a better place because he was here.
