No Code

20th Century Planet Earth New York City Television Reporter at JFK to random traveler: "Excuse me, sir---sir, are you afraid of flying? Random traveler: "No. CRASHING." *********************************** It's not the thought of being dead that keeps me sleepless in my bed, it's the method in which I go, be it fast or be it slow. It might be too confusing to pass while simply snoozing, and the nursing home nightmare is a thought too hard to bear. No long illness to make me simper, I'll go with a bang, not a whimper. HEAR THE TRUTH WITHIN THIS ODE: DNR--Do Not Code. ************************************ 21st Century Planet Earth New Orleans, LA Television Reporter shortly after hurricane Katrina, interviewing a random New Orleans resident: "What are you guys going to do, now that all your churches have been destroyed?" New Orleans resident, scowling: "We goes to Popeye's." ************************************** GOD BLESS THE IGNORANT, FOR THEY SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH. ************************************** ©Danielle White
