Your Beautiful (lethal) Life

Your Beautiful (lethal) Life elegy

Uploaded by Carl Halling


Shooting star
With a quicksilver mind,
You deserve to go so far,
Can’t someone stop you
Before you ruin your soul,
With irreversible harm?

Drinking all day,
Every single day,
Out of your head on booze,
Is this the life,
Is this the way,
A gifted child should choose?

Your beautiful lethal life
My friend,
Has sent you around the bend,
Your foolish defiant
Decadent dance
Could soon be at an end.

But you don’t care
Do you, shooting star?
As you drift in your blissful dream.
