Haiku: Wakeup Call

‘Twas Amazing Grace,

sung loud and off-key,

that  got my full at-

tention.

 

I was encased: Spam

in a can, with frozen

smile and far too much

makeup.

 

Clad in my best suit.

A solo sung in

Makita soprano

tones

 

jolted me awake:

I’d been the guest of

honor at my own

funeral.
