passing

it seems i died not long ago
though few have since believed
the wiser man who took my place
has anyone deceived

he looks as much as i did
and often sounds the same
though little of his judgment
was ever mine to claim

we spoke but once before i passed
yet smiling he said,
“well done, my friend, i pray as much
is learned before i’m dead”
