How to Kick a Bucket

set the pail down

make sure to wear a shoe

or a boot may be better

with running start

the distance makes no difference

if you miss just keep on going

or stand beside the bucket

look down to see it empty

simply tip it

_____________

dVerse prompt quadrillé using kick – one origin of “kick the bucket” is the Catholic use of holy water at the feet of a corpse – the corpse would stretch its legs and tip the bucket

  1. Never heard this Catholic explanation of Kick the Bucket. Familiar with fonts of holy water as you enter the church…this is a new one for me. As I always say, I’m always learning at dVerse! 🙂
