I Don’t

You would think
I would deal
with death
better than I do.

But don’t ask
my advice
about what to say
to someone at the end.

Don’t expect me
to have anything
but a detached reaction
when the final verdict
comes down.

You would think
I would deal
with death
better than I do.

After all the times
it has touched me
over the years.

Knowing that
the pipeline just
gets more and
more clogged
as each day
passes.

You would think
I would deal
with death
better than I do.

But I don’t.
I don’t.
I don’t.

And what’s more?

I won’t.
I won’t.
I won’t.
