Funeral in My Head

Pink mist surrounds your body,
I thought it should be blue.
To match the tie you wore,
to the funeral of you.
Your eulogy was perfect,
I thought it should have failed.
To match the lies around you,
so many of us inhaled.
Your casket smelled of cherry wood,
I thought it should just be dirt.
To match your fake exterior,
and your evil – every word.
I cover the last of you,
and lower you into the ground.
Your memory is buried,
and my mind is finally sound.
