O What Foolish Creatures of Dumb Habit Are We? (Poetry)

“O What Foolish Creatures of Dumb Habit Are We?” is a poem that was written as the prelude to a eulogy for a Communications class.

O what foolish creatures
Of dumb habit are we?
In death, let there be passion
But never lost in tears!
For eventual death was 
Never among his great fears
Let there be so much joy 
As a soul passes on
To be among angels
With she long desired
For his mortal body 
Was tired and worn
But now he has his cloud 
To set and rest upon
