In Lieu of Flowers

I was selfish in life but will be selfless in death

A narrow minded boy, confining a soul of great breadth

In lieu of flowers, make me seem philanthropic

Make me out to be kindest, on sympathetic topic

You've always known me best, my coin of a face

How I growled in isolation, but smiled on velvet walkways

In lieu of flowers, hide my dual ways

Allow me only with the brightest smile, be portrayed

I lived life in fine cloth, so bury me plain

Applaud my charitable nature, despite it being a hypocritical campaign

In lieu of flowers, show kindness in my name

Let it be out of vanity, but let it not be vain
