A Crocodile Ate Me
Before I had ever seen or heard of a crocodile
a memory of one eating me when I was a child
that’s how my last life ended, did I live on the Nile?
was I an Egyptian who suffered a fate so vile
I always knew reincarnation was a fact
the second I heard of it I was sure of that
people live one life and then come back
and as for religion it’s all absolute crap
I was just a toddler but I felt most assured
that religious beliefs were part of a fraud,
learning of crocs terrified to the core
I was given this life now as a reward
I also feel as though this is my final life
like I wont be reborn again after I die
fulfilling my purpose as is the design
I wont be on Earth but I know I’ll survive!
