NaPoWriMo2014 #10 ~ Truth In Advertising

Truth In Advertising

The comfort of the coffin 
is not for us

It is a replacement host
for those we have carried in life

The silk pillow
becomes bed for Demodex
satin linings
become blankets for the family
E. faecalis
B. bifidum
E. coli

So how about a little honesty

Caskets - 
expensive retirement homes
for mites and bacteria
protection from the elements included
you provide the perishable

Inspired by NaPoWriMo Day Ten prompt: poetry in advertising. 

Information on bacteria and mites: "The Organisms That Make Us Who We Are" by Justine Alford.
