ȸ • ɸ • fare-thee-well • ɸ • ȹ


when it’s time for me

to depart this world

i want to go out with a bang!


singing and dancing

with a marching band

high-steppin’ all the way


no looking back

and no regrets

what’s done is done

after all


i might as well

make a lot of  noise

as i bid this life farewell

  1. Why do people have to pick Friday for new Writing prompts?
    Sunday is the least used day…Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
    Anyway, Loved your 55 Dani.
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  2. This is great. Well done. And, oh, yeah, me too!

    I love that pic, dani–if i hadn’t been writing on something completely different, i would have chosen it. And your poem fits it perfectly–might as well enter the spirit world with spirit. ;_)

  4. Wonderful! I love New Orleans jazz bands, Down by the Riverside, When the Saints Go Marching In…a glorious way to depart this world.

  5. What a wonderful spirit of departure. I always loved the idea of the NO funeral marching bands. And this poem captures the idea so well! And thank you for posting the Poetry Jam link!

  6. Oh, I love this, Sista Poet! Ani Difranco has a song where she says she’s gonna make a lot of noise when she goes down…that everyone for blocks is gonna know she died. I think you and she are on the same page!

    My father was a huge fan of New Orleans jazz, and I like it a lot, too. Great post, and thanks so much for being part of the first FF!

  7. Dani, I am with you all the way!! I want to live my life in such a way that there are no regrets when it is over with. I want nothing I have control over to remain undone! Very wise poem.

  8. Perfect accompaniment to the photo……out with a bang, and plenty of music! Good plan!

  9. heck yeah…i am going to go out banging pots and having a blast…dancing…smiles….and i hope those that gather at my passing do the same…

  10. Great poem. I want the same thing….out with a bang. Great picture.


  11. I like this kind of attitude…this is way we should say farewell ~

  12. This was pure fun and I so would love not to only go out that way, but to live my life that way. I’m starting to learn to do so… ! :) This was a ultra-fabulous 55 and Poetry Jam contribution! (loved the marching band, too)

    • thank you so much, Margaret! ♥ i try to live that way {though i’m not always successful!} i really appreciate you stopping by and your sweet comment.

  13. Fun, cuts to it, relatable

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
