To make One’s Toilette after Death

To make One’s Toilette after Death

To make One’s Toilette after Death
Has made the Toilette cool
Of only Taste we cared to please
Is difficult, and still

That’s easier than Braid the Hair
And make the Bodice gay
When eyes that fondled it are wrenched
By Decalogues away
