Changing the arranging of death,
Warping souls into hand-held devices,
Advices are priceless methods of breath,
As you take your last step the next suffices
As a hologram.
No more residing by pits in the land,
Re-brand how we see our lost loved ones,
Using buttons we click to hand,
Maybe not the same liver and lungs
But tongues of wisdom exclaim.
Frame a fresh narrative on systems,
Death by a diseased brain harvests
Among fistfuls of pistols
Regardless, goodbyes won’t be the hardest,
Once they’ll be with you in pixels.
