i am a sad song. i am the song of death Poem by Suki Nakamura


i am a sad song
don't ever sing me
my lyrics are dangerous
to your quest for happiness
i am a very sad song
don't even ever whistle me
the dead have listened once
and they like being dead forever
those living hummed the tune
and they killed themselves in masse

for i am the song of death
so unforgiving and quick and decisive
it has the sharpest notes of incisions
and the cut is precise, the date so certain.

i am the song of death and you must dislike me.
do not run, i do not chase for i am just a song.
but soon in your ear, i will surely be there.
