No Wasted Space

Thirty thousand dollars for a cemetery plot?
I think not.  That's money most people haven't got.

There's a better place than wasted space.
Anyway, the dead can't make a case
For their final resting place.

Since it's up to me,
I choose to be
Buried at sea.

Atlantic or Pacific?
I think I'll be specific.

Cape Charles or Cape Cod.
But I could also give a nod

to the Sitka bay,
since I cherish the day

when my son came to be
born in that place by the sea.
