Life and Death

Life is like a car without brakes

Except on fire and filled up with snakes

It frantically flies, as if scraping the skies

And will probably end up in a lake


But life has a deadline in mind

You will die if you’re rude or you’re kind

Whether you die with a splash or a horrible crash

Death is the truth we all find


So don’t worry about when you’ll die

We get there at different times

Some deaths take a week, some die in their sleep

And some even fall from the sky


So death is no reason to fear

Millions breathe their last breath every year

so just rest assured that your death is assured

And someday your time will be here
