Bewilderment

In the minutes of the meeting
Last held with God
There is an entry under
Any Other Business.

One of those present
Brought up the subject of
Mortal bewilderment.

It was asked of God
That if it were possible,
Could there be a standardisation
Across cultures
As to the post-death procedures
That are to be applied
On behalf of the departed
By those left behind?

God said that the rites
Pertaining to those
Who had died had two functions:
Sanitation and sanity.

As to the departed soul,
God said that He alone
Would take care of that.
