Dear member of the Constituency

Dear member of the Constituency

Death is a thriving industry because “a person” has inalienable rights to exist as a ghost. As members of the House of Reps, we are under oath to attend to those who are present. Your power of attorney can only be exercised by those of us who can afford to remain in the present. 

Look, you are already sufficiently represented if you are either mourning or are being mourned. To represent doesn’t mean to affirm the existence of the represented. It means to affirm the non-existence of the represented. 

It is also the inalienable obligation of a person to vote for those who are present. In other words, only those who can’t afford to be present must acknowledge their lack of presence by a vote. Only the dead would cast/vote his power of attorney to another. This goes to show that as “Representatives,” we are undertakers. It is our service to humanity to keep representing those who can no longer afford to be present. 

Don’t be an ingrate. There’s more money in the hands of a few because the majority, as ghosts, are already spent. This is the essence of death. It entails the signing of an undertaking to have an undertaker, a representative, exercise your power of attorney on your behalf. 

You must count yourself fortunate. At least you can afford to be anywhere but present. 

Death, again I say, remains the most thriving industry globally. Lest I forget, the constituency makes up 97% of the world population. This piece of information should count for something.

Yours sincerely, 

Honorable Speaker, House of Reps.
