Inspired by the Paul Simon song “50 ways to leave your lover,”
Find fifty ways to say goodbye
in this shipment's fresh supply:

some with words and punctuation,
some with songs of adulation.

See a look of sad dismay,
many tears to wipe away,

a sack for gifts to leave behind,
and platitudes to dull the mind.

This should meet your grieving needs.
Here's some wisdom you might heed:

when you empty out your cup
something else will fill you up.
