Que Quiero


I want to die quite naked
alone and fast asleep
a pillow underneath my head
a sheet about my feet.

I want to hear the angels
altogether cry
'It wasn't indigestion,
t'was a full blown MI;

But what of that, it's over-
no matter now, you're here;
so find yourself a chair somewhere
and grab yourself a beer.'

This song is na' so lengthy
and it's certainly not too deep-
Auden would probably howl
Rilke would probably weep,

But I want to die in bed, now,
it's quite the comfiest place
with the covers pulled up all the way
and a smile on my face.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
