    “My will is easy to decide
    For there is nothing to divide
    My kin don’t need to fuss and moan
    “Moss does not cling to a rolling stone.”
    My body? – Oh. – If I could choose
    I would to ashes it reduce
    And let the merry breezes blow
    My dust to where some flowers grow
    Perhaps some fading flower then
    Would come to life and bloom again
    This is my Last and final Will
    Good Luck to All of you
    Joe Hill
