Taphophobia

unnamed-3

Hans Christian Andersen

so feared being buried alive

that he always kept a note

in his pocket, that read —

“Please do not bury me

as I may not be dead” 

Still, Hans is dead now, though,

& that gets me worried

so

I always carry a note with me

for when —-

that says,

“I may not be Hans Christian Andersen.”
