WHEN YOU SEE A HEARSE GO BY
YOU WILL BE THE NEXT TO DIE.
THEY WRAP YOU UP IN A CLEAN WHITE SHEET
AND THROW YOU IN A HOLE ABOUT SIX FEET DEEP.
THE WORMS CRAWL IN, THE WORMS CRAWL OUT.
THE ANTS PLAY PINOCHLE ON YOUR SNOUT.
YOUR STOMACH TURNS A MOLDY GREEN
AND PUS COMES OUT LIKE A DAIRY QUEEN.
YOUR EYES POP OUT. YOUR TEETH DECAY.
AND THAT'S THE END OF A WONDERFUL DAY.
