Poem text: “Death was in attendance, present, here
But alas, it would not be catered to,
For I was not amused at it’s arrival
How dare death show its face at my place
F*** off, get out, you didn’t R.S.V.P.
Cause an invite you did not receive
For you to show up with the big C by your side
I don’t care for you nor do I admit your plus one
There’s no parley or terms of agreement
You’re not coming in and I’m not coming out
I choose my own path and pull my own leash
Don’t think to tell me what to do
How dare it even hold a suggestion
Or does it think I accept its insinuation
That I keep its plus one in its stead
F*** you I’m not stupid or dead
For you I hold no fear or dread
But take your C and go elsewhere instead”
Written and performed by Franco Esteve.
