    Dark humoured way of looking at death. Very original and a pleasure to read. Oh but the dark of the humour! Topclass read. (Report) Reply

    What a dreadful voice over for the readings. Computerised, soul less - awful. Far better not to have it read out at all than ruined in this way. (Report) Reply

    Let me die a youngman's death
    not a free from sin tiptoe in
    candle wax and waning death
    not a curtains drawn by angels borne
    'what a nice way to go' death

    sympathized

    A very poor reading of this poem. Why did you not get Roger McGough to read it himself or at least someone who understands and can express the words. (Report) Reply

    Hello, everyone. I am trying to find a somewhat humorous poem about death that I heard a few years ago and just loved. As I recall, it was about how the best way to go is to be completely used up at the end of life, our bodies completely spent. Does anyone know this poem? I'd love to find it again. Thank you in advance. (Report) Reply
