And now a sonnet

To Live Forever

I'd like to speak with Immortality
To ask about the rates. This little time
I have today seems just enough to die.
The need to fall asleep should be a crime
And sickness punished for not being nice.
A legend lives forever and a myth
Will never die. Why can't I just live twice?
You say I'll pay with an unending lisp?
Sir Immortality, you'll give yourself
For such a silly thing? O, I can see
Each sunset, dusk and dawn in perfect health!
I say the world must bow from now to me.
But I remember braces. O the hell!
To lisp forever? Sir, you've lost your sell.
