i was born in the poorest county
in the fifth poorest state in the union
though kentucky isn’t truly a state
it’s a commonwealth
where wealth is uncommon
and the only glistening skylines
down in those parts are tombstones
i’ve known for years at heart
i’m an expatriate
who wants no part
of that prime real estate

The Queen City is better than a funeral fit for a Queen.
Thank you, Billiam, deeply.
