Apropos of Nothing

My will is easy to decide
For I have nothing to divide
My kin don't need to weep 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 soon rise up and grow green again
This is my last and final will
Good luck to all of you,
                        Joe Hill
Labor organizer. IWW Wobblie.

Executed in November of 1915, Salt lake City, Utah. 
Claimed he wouldn't be caught dead in Utah.
