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.
