Double Whammy

Clipart of a grave. The words RIP are on the tombstone

My family’s not having much luck,
My auntie got hit by a truck,
Took ten men to render,
And peel from the fender,

you might want to read this in conjunction with my “uncle” poem, what I wrote a few hours ago.

And, before anybody comments, I realise that people do get hit by trucks, and that it is tragic. All deaths are tragic. They are also unavoidable, so how else can we look at death, except with a strong dose of humour?


There’s some more family nonsense here:
