A woman finally makes her debut in heaven, but one is left wondering, why?

Debut in Heaven

Her once red lips were far too blue,

around her we found not a clue

as to how we came to say adieu,

the town around us became askew,

this, we were unable to construe

in heaven she finally made her debut.

    I think “not found” not “found not” !! :)

    It would sound awkward that way I think. Perhaps did not find a clue… but found not I feel is still fine. When its poetry I find that poets play around with the words sometimes.

    Very interesting poem… and usually I’d rather go with just do it attitude, without wondering why. But for the last one I also need to tell you one thing, as written on one of the t-shirt I used to love very much, “Don’t follow me, I’m lost.” Hahaha ^_^

    Short or not,it still carries a message.Find the song ,Epitath,Black& Blue,, by Kris Kristofferson,it is a very old song about a woman’s’ funeral, borders on the bizarre,but beautifully written.
