Priests and Paramedics
- 152 Views
Paramedics brave and strong Up before the break of dawn Putting poker faces on Broken bodies all day long The neighbors heard a fight Someone had a knife It must have have been the wife Husband's lost a lot of blood He wakes up screaming "Oh my God, am I gonna die? Am I gonna die?" As they strapped his arms down to his sides At times like these they'd been taught to lie "Buddy just calm down, you'll be alright." Several friends came to his grave His children were so well-behaved As the priest got up to speak The assembly craved relief But he himself had given up So instead he offered them this bitter cup "You're gonna die, we're all gonna die Could be twenty years, could be tonight Lately I have been wondering why We go to so much trouble to postpone the unavoidable And prolong the pain of being alive"
