Funeral Home (A Poem for Day Fourteen of PAD)

It's late. I'm tired. A short poem was in order. 

Here is the prompt (from day fourteencopied from Poetic Asides: For today’s prompt, write a report poem. I know, I know: Writing a report sounds about as far away from poetry as flying is to a penguin, but many poems report on a moment or an instance or a scene. In your poem (or poems) today, report on something big and important or small and inconsequential (or small and important–or, well, you get the idea).

Funeral Home

Same dead body,
same casket,
same urn,
same last respects,
same tears,
different family.
