HEY DEAF MAN NOW LISTEN

You are now destined to visit
unknown places
see ghostly faces
now are loose
all your braces

soon you will leave no traces
so simply relax
have a drink
why medicate self more
why do you wanna live unsure

Thank your lucky stars
Covid 19 hasn't met you yet
else all desires of living you'd regret

pack up
another few hours
why weep
for you now there is no cure
tell me what you want to hear more

O Doc I'd like to know
will you precede
the show
Now in advance you go

of dying. What if there isn't anything after this? Did I mean so little to the world? Did I not leave a more permanet mark? WTF? How can this be happening to me? We all die a little each day, some of us have more life than others. I'm pissed! I want as much as anyone else! When faced with the end, we are all alone, and there is no one that can help us. I'm not going gently into the night. Dr. Death is going to have to drag me kicking and screaming all the way.

THE last ashes man animal or woman
just fill a small plastic bag
spread the ashes
all minerals
not into Ganges
but on earth freely
Scotland may be
just recycle pl

no body stands around waiting for you to die. Not even an ugly nurse! They just wait until they hear the beeper go off and if they think you might have a chance, they rush around and save your ass. If not, they just come in and shut it off. ~Geez.
