Sitting in the doctors waiting room,
A poster about preparing for your funeral.
Fancy putting that up!
Wondering what to put in the coffin.
His palette, and his favourite brush of course,
A tube of titanium white,
Always using that.
Although there might be lots of paint in heaven.
For her, a nice bit of velvet,
Soft and comforting.
The bell rang for the next patient,
She rose to answer it.
Going to have the blood test
That would change her life.
