The longest ride a man can take
is in an empty hearse.
Whether going there, or coming back,
There's no difference in the lack.

If empty in expectation,
Then the coffin lies ahead.
And emptiness in completion
Means that all is passed and dead.

It is only with the coffin,
At the crux of death itself,
We see what we have to lose,
And appreciate our health.
