Accidental Ending

Accidental Ending

I remember you clearly

I'll never forget the day

You put a plant pot on the TV

And the top of the TV fell away

-

Your dog tripped me over

I fell onto the table

My mum helped you to repair

The broken bits of cable

-

Your house was a bit of a nightmare

It was always rather strange

But when your life ended

I understood the way it was arranged

-

You'd been suffering for some time

You wanted your life to end

With mishaps or an accident

It would have been easier to comprehend

-

You didn't want to suffer any more

But you couldn't explain suicide

So accidentally killing yourself

Was the best end to your rough ride
