Why Ask Why?
“Why did she do it? ”
They all want to know
I have a shameful confession
I don’t really care
All I wish to know
How did she go?
Did she stick a gun in her mouth
to taste spinning led as it meticulously removed the back of her head?
Did she wrap a chord tight around her neck
till the only song sung was diminished?
Did she jump off a ledge
painting the ground when she hit?
Did she spread her veins open
And with what did she use?
Was this her first?
Cause we know it was her last
I hope she was creative
