Dr. Christine Mitchell was our teacher, and I thought hers was very funny, so I am posting it here today. She has given me permission to post the poem. I have written it exactly how she had done it in class. So read below and enjoy.
Because I Could Not Stop for Death
By Dr. Christine Mitchell
Because I could not stop for death
I went along my way,
Picking daisies, wearing hats,
And loving every day.
I strove to spend at least a year
With loved ones near & far,
When Death peeked out his ugly head
I hit him w/my car.
I spent my time in foreign lands
I ate chocolate till I burst
I paid no heed to Death’s commands –
I’ll have my living 1st.
