Funeral Suit

The Funeral Suit is of navy blue
It still fits
But it's a little loose these days

In the inside pocket are the memento cards
From the funerals that it has attended
Four in number for now
With several more to come before it retires

One for my father Fred
One for best friend Jenny
One for grandpa Arnold
One for grandma Jean

Sometime in the future
The last card to be added to the memento card pocket
Would be my own

Inserted as I lay in the coffin
Wearing the infamous Funeral Suit for the last time
Looking chubby and dapper in navy blue
Made up to almost look asleep by the friendly town mortician
The Funeral Suit's job done at last
Dyed blue in the wool friend tried and true
