"Hey Father Death, I'm flying home
Hey poor man, you're all alone
Hey old daddy, I know where I'm going
Father Death, Don't cry any more
Mama's there, underneath the floor
Brother Death, please mind the store
Old Aunty Death Don't hide your bones
Old Uncle Death I hear your groans
O Sister Death how sweet your moans
O Children Deaths go breathe your breath
Sobbing breasts'll ease your Deaths
Pain is gone, tears take the rest
Genius Death your art is done
Lover Death your body's gone
Father Death I'm coming home
Guru Death your words are true
Teacher Death I do thank you
For inspiring me to sing this Blues
Buddha Death, I wake with you
Dharma Death, your mind is new
Sangha Death, we'll work it through
Suffering is what was born
Ignorance made me forlorn
Tearful truths I cannot scorn
Father Breath once more farewell
Birth you gave was no thing ill
My heart is still, as time will tell."
Father Death Blues
One of the #strangest things I've seen in a while...
On the way home I counted 4 #deer on the side of the road, clearly #dead , each 10-20yrds from one another.
All appeared to be female.
No visible signs of injury or impact.
All right next to the road...and a huge electrical tower.
Highly populated residential area.
A friend suggested perhaps poisoning (which is sad), but their location raises questions.
And of course the fact that all were perfectly intact.
