IM SUPERMARKT: FLEISCHABTEILUNG

Michael Drewes 1944 (Herzhausen)



In der Fleischabteilung aufgebahrt
eisgekühlt und unter Plastikdom
ruht der nackte Doktor Eisenbart;
man erwartet sein Begräbnis schon.

Alle Käufer standen sprachlos da,
als man ihn dort leblos liegen sah.

"Ach, von Doktor Eisenbart ein Stück",
so rief eine alte Frau zurück.
"Nu, dat jeht nu leider nich eenmol,
weil he unner Erde liggen scholl!"

"Und wenn ich doch noch einmal sterben soll,
dann sende ich dir diesen schönen Duft,
den Lavendel und auch den Jasmin.

Damit füll ich dir die Luft,
welche dich im Schlafe sanft umgibt
und die dich trösten soll!"
