Solomon Grundy died last Sunday

Solomon Grundy

died last Sunday,

fictitious though he was;

he had a wake on Tuesday,

was buried on Wednesday,

it is so, because,

you have to believe

in those for whom we grieve,

even if they were the living of books;

written in the past,

their stories can last,

when upon the words one looks.

If you enjoyed this, there is a follow-up poem to be found here. G:)
