Poetry by Jeff Green


And in the end …

I’ve always known the way I want to die
Without a wish to do it very soon
I’m certainly not of a mind to try
I think that life is by and large a boon

In time I know that I will have to end
To shuffle off this coil or pop my clogs
I’ll buy the farm or go to see a friend
And leave the human race to see the dogs

I want to go out in a blaze of fire
Not limp away ashamed of who I’ve been
So ever more the best will show desire
To live and die as well as “Old Jeff Green”

So this is how I’ll go when comes the time
Shot down by cuckolds who abhor my crime!!!
