A Wake With Coffee


Note: Something I gleaned from fellow Chicago Now blogger, Jack Spatafora: ” A South Carolina funeral home is opening a Starbucks in their lobby. Director Chris Robinson hopes ‘it will help customers get their minds off what is going on'”.

South Carolina has a guy
Who is a licensed undertaker.
His work begins when people die
Ere buried in God’s Little Acre.

But this mortician’s tender-hearted.
He knows how stressful it’s to mourn,
To view the recently departed
In rigor mortis and forlorn.

He came up with a brilliant notion
To help one who commiserates:
A Starbucks cappuccino potion
Or latte a la Pearly Gates.
