INZANEINESS

by John Yeo

   The doorbell chimed as the family gathered.

A large scruffily-dressed man was revealed on the doorstep wearing a monocle. 

An enormous black bow tie was roughly tied around his neck.

His grey hair, hung down beneath a battered top hat.

‘I’m here for my funeral.’

‘Get out of here!’  was the reaction.

‘I will when you bury me.’  came the zany reply.
