I'm Leaving My Body to Science, Not Medical, but Physics

No one else has fallen this far,
And lived to tell the tale-- so many times,
So I'm donating my body to physics.

They can use me as a crash-test dummy
Like everyone else already has.

Or drop me from air-planes to test new parachutes,
For free-fall  is all too familiar.

Or, they could put me in, over my head,
And see how long 'till I sink...

Regardless, I'm used to it all,
And afraid of change,
So physicists can abuse my body in death
Like everyone abuses my heart in life.

The End
