Always On My Mind At the undertakers when the door rattled, I knew it was dad demanding a cheap coffin. I ignored him when he said at that price he would prefer to be hung on the washing line and let the birds do the work. He insisted both metal hips should be weighed-in, they wouldn’t be any use where he was going. I told him, forget it, he was being cremated. But I did what he said when it came to the wake. He’s forever telling me I need to get a grip, now he’s started on the kids who’ve had enough of him switching off the lights, moaning on about Brexit and the rising cost of living. It’s their life they say. I told him he’s joking if he thinks he can tell me what to do at my age. I know my own mind. About time he says; he has better things to be getting on with.
