Pharaoh Makes Money

I would like all my friends
to make some small contribution
towards providing grave goods for my eventual tomb.
I trust it will be sumptuous,
and eons from now will be dug up
and exclaimed over
and admired in museums.
What’s in it for you?
You get to share
in my immortality,
and viewing my posthumous glory may convince you
to shake down all your friends for your own tomb—
it’s the original pyramid scheme.
