This Is On Me.
Author: Bipedalguy


In life I was frugal.
Some called me cheap.
Because when the bill came,
Id sit there and weep.

In death, Im more giving,
as the whole world can see.
It's engraved on my headstone,
This is on me

Good humor - appreciate the smile.

Thanks Rick

It looks like the guy in the poem came up with a good way to have the last word, and to still look generous. He also saved money on the engraving. (Only 10 letters)

Thanks again Terrie*

Your comments are very encouraging, because humor (and simplicity) are just what I usually am trying to get into my writes. I have to admit that when something really strikes me funny, like on T.V., I have sometimes had to leave the room for fear that my laughter will overcome me. (to the point of injury)
