Ridiculous

Ridiculous long poem

Uploaded by john amburgey


Ridiculous, ridiculum, ridiculi,
Everything that lives must suffer and die.
Ridiculous, ridiculum, ridiculi,
You can’t live forever so why even try.

Don’t give it away though,
Don’t let them take it from you either.
Don’t really even mind going,
Just don’t want it to hurt.
Don’t tell me that you have to live every day,
Then forget how to do it yourself.

Ridiculous, ridiculum, ridiculi,
Everything that lives must suffer and die.
Ridiculous, ridiculum, ridiculi,
You can’t live forever so why even try.

Can’t quit though.
Can’t let it eat at you.
Can’t bury you head in the sand,
Hoping it will pass you by.
Can’t let the fear of death lead to the fear of life,
As it inevitably would.

Ridiculous, ridiculum, ridiculi,
Everything that lives must suffer and die.
Ridiculous, ridiculum, ridiculi,
You can’t live forever so why even try.

Won’t be going today, I hope.
Won’t be tomorrow either, most likely.
Won’t know when the time will come,
But the time will come.
Won’t have any fear, pain or regrets that day
We leave that behind

Ridiculous, ridiculum, ridiculi,
Everything that lives must suffer and die.
Ridiculous, ridiculum, ridiculi,
You can’t live forever so why even try.
