WELCOME TO MY PARTY
Welcome to the party find a good seat
There is plenty of food for everyone to partake
Speak fondly of me, for all ears to hear

I am wearing my best dress, and have a smile for all to see
Tonight I am a lady of leisure, I lay in wait
Beautiful flowers fill the air with the aroma of a garden
Memories the topic of discussion
My legacy, I have none to leave

Oh, please don't weep for me, where were those tears yesterday?
Please take away the flowers, I was never worthy of them before
Take away the food, no one fed me when I was hungry
Walk away from me, forget the memories for none exists
There is no redemption for your lack of conscience, for now I am gone

Wonderful, once again relating to things going on in my life at the present moment. It's so true people are so funny I swear we are the most insensitive of all the animal kingdom...

oh and the title...is great. I love titles that arent explained until the poem is read in its entirety. The poem itself contains irony and metaphor that is inescapably genius

ahhhh... i had to reread it twice. It's eerily profound. I like the tone. It almost sounds cyncial and matter of fact...but has an air of royalty and yet desperation with some hope even after death. The lines about worthy and no one fed me and no legacy...were awesome. It all makes the reader hear the voices from the grave- speak grave truth and teach those left behind of such mockery and shallowness. This poem subject matter suprised me...made me squirm a bit, but that too is the sign of a well written and lasting impact- poem.
