Death Perfect Slam

If i was a betiing man I'd go all in and bet my none exiting inheritance That just as many people die On perfect day's As on the day's Wishing they we're dead The only difference, 2 fold being The dead never get to speak or tell about it when they get home and a family member or loved 1 generally does ask How was your day Did you have a nice day my love And surely no one wants to die on a perfect day but rather when life has you kneeling baying for a mercy kill To a place where everyone now is equal and has to wait in turn as no 1 gets to jump the que even those once deemed rich and famous and moderately successful Better to be standing behind them with nothing to declare but untold debts and tales of persecution than with a pocket full of ill gotten gain and a C.V boasting a multitude of awards and achievements Apart from taking and never giving back anything in return

You are so correct; most of us do not get to come back and talk about our perfect death day after we die. Well penned! A great read

Oh yes this is a very very good Christopher love it, said like a real general, Spartacus himself would’ve been proud to use this death slam before the Battle of Cantenna where he met his end, rousing stuff cheers David.

Well judging by your poem Kirk Douglas would be the one boasting a big C/V, so I’d think you’d choose Spartacus.
