A Smudgy Bottle – Daginne Aignend


He died today

A shriveled being between stained sheets

His dignity evaporated by a smudgy bottle

A leftover of some indefinable alcoholic liquid

The smell of irrevocable decay

He used to be an inspired visionary

A dreamer, he could change the world

Propagating  humanity, decency

Every setback only encouraged him

An inducement to restore lost hope

He died today

They buried him in an anonymous grave

No one came to show him respect

An insignificant unloved outworn person

His inheritance, a smudgy unlabeled bottle

With some indefinable alcoholic liquid in it
