No Air, No Air

Asphyxiation is the

Worst way to die.

Your head is telling

You that it's going

To be all right, while

Your death is staged

With clumsy fingers

And a fondness for

Suffering, ill-planned

Maneuvers being your

Downfall. So your lungs

Search for breath when

There isn't any, and you're

Killed when the universe

Takes the simplest of

Rights away from you:

The ability to know

When you're dying.

The End
