I offer quickly, my advice to you...

The breath drained from my lungs
my heart beats no more
grown cold, my dead eyes
stare open, at the floor

Fallen from my chair
under too much drink
the knife digs deeper
from where it sinks

Blood pools besides me
thickly, a deepest red
Vanities I care not
for I am dead

My tongue hangs
from mouths open way
Rigamortis sets quickly
stiffly, here I lay

My prattling jaw
quieted in untimely death
no more can I offer
wisdom in lifeless breath

My boney fingers.
Motionless, they type no more
lifeless hands, stiffly
grow cold on the floor.

Before passing, this I offer
quickly, my advice to you
to play with knifes while drinking
risk the chance they pass you through.

I offer quickly, my advice to you...
