Terra Verma

Going Out of Business Sale

Chop locally

He was supposed to be dead

That's naturally assumed

When you can't find the head

.

He was supposed to be buried

Entombed and inhumed

His rot, in situ, unhurried

.

He was supposed to be food for worms

At terra verma, six feet consumed

But murder, they crowed, duly confirms

.

He was supposed to be interred in the earth

But was dug up, brought to the mall's food emporium

For Black Friday, offered for less than he's worth

.

Support local stiffness — chop locally

    Hahahhahahahahhahahaha omggggg I loved this so much! Also, only recently I found out that Earth is known as Terra. We refer to living things on Earth as Earthlings. So when talking about Terra, do we refer to ourselves as Terrarists? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
