Speaking of Life and Death,
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
I shall not live in vain, nor be a slave.
As for facing the facts, I shall be brave:
Does it not bring happiness just as well,
To have the chance to dance upon my grave?
I speak, neither of the Devil nor hell,
But as for heaven, heaven is on Earth
No less with a death, sometimes, than a birth.
I deemed myself as good, but as I think
Of it, surely there are ways I do stink!
It follows from the statistical laws
That even the best probably have flaws.
Besides, to be well loved in every land
Is being someone who never takes stands;
For as soon as someone asserts the will
With a growl, some opponent wants to kill.
Since I do have a will, and sometimes growl,
Surely someone does find my scent quite foul.
So some "hounds" would gladly tear me apart.
Therefore, if I did now dearly depart,
Why not toast the passing of, "the old fart"?
By all means do dance! Drink up the champagne
After my time comes! Should I die in vain?
With purpose I live, so thus may I die,
As surely as death, as songbirds should fly.
