VIKING FUNERAL

He knew Corona was round the corner
many did not know
but he had read the news '

Quickly he decided to sell his mansion
for two millions
then he vanished from the scene
not to be seen
he knew
Recession will soon be in
the costs fell to a million.

They moved into their child's
small house
where he suddenly
took ill and died
no one cried
a rich widow left inside
he was cremated in style

In a boat they burned him with coal
the boat towards the distant horizon
on the river did float

The flames surged into the eternal skies
then his memory was only like the twilight
did not many surprise

even those who never saw
the boat
such a boat
ever in their lives

I've read something very very similar from you, or maybe I'm going mad?
Very emotional and full of imagery, very sad. Where i live now there are many many homes for two million on sale, they are called Agriturismo like hotels but on the land of the country side, it's really sad to see, even worse who's going to buy them? Covids having it's fun.

Love your title by the way powerful.

Thank you...Teddy
