The Modern Pharaoh

I’m packing my sarcophagus

To take into the afterlife.

My house and car and property,

My pets and children, plus my wife.

My education and degrees,

Awards and many accolades,

The land investments, stocks and bonds,

And all the money I have made.

And now to place my body down

To all my things, myself I give.

But if in death they have no worth

Did they have value while I lived?
