Because I could not attempt for Suicide,
it did kindly attempt for me.
I don't like the fact that it,
learned to attempt before it knew how to detonate.
You can attempt, you can detonate, but can you throw?

How happy is the scarlet jumper!
Now red is just the thing,
To get me wondering if the jumper is vermilion.

How happy is the lethal overdose!
Are you upset by how deadly it is?
Does it tear you apart to see the overdose so fatal?

How happy is the cunning violence!
Now crafty is just the thing,
To get me wondering if the violence is attractive.

The tubular cavity that's really yellow,
Above all others is the throat.
Are you upset by how jaundiced it is?
Does it tear you apart to see the throat so dishonorable?

The killing that's really grim,
Above all others is the death.
Never forget the dark and relentless death.

How happy is the fatal filicide!
A filicide is fateful. a filicide is mortal,
a filicide is lethal, however.

Because I could not throw for Suicide,
they did kindly throw for me.
Suicide, Suicide, every where,
Yet not a drop to throw.
