If I Live Out My Life in Peace, You Can Claim Credit

Any of you can.
And if it is a long life,
As well as peaceful,
Not too awful at the end,

You’re free to credit
Any habits that I had
Good or bad. The chance

Of my existence
Appearing desirable
In retrospect was always
Slim, given how it began.

But really, will it matter
To the ghost how its host went?
As I was, I am content.
