1969 Dodge

My dad once pulled a promise
from me. He said
But you'll still speak
at my funeral, won't you?

What can you say to that
kind of question? I mean,
it's not even one you can dodge
at all. Not at all. No way.


  1. What did you say when you spoke?

  2. I've not yet spoken. He's in his 70's and hobbles, very much alive.

    Unless of course you meant that day he asked the question. In which case, it was something like "of course I will."

    That's the only thing you can say to that kind of question. :)
