Disappearer

you say millions now living will never die
can one of you please explain how come
the rest of us are going to disappear from
the face of this earth because we will you
know disappear that is don't think i'll ever
get a reply still it's worth asking the tough
questions every once in a while just to let
them know you're still kicking no i'm not
dead yet though i may as well be if time
is an abstract as they say we'll never know
who the living ones will be say could we
say bye to cold hard feelings celebrations
lamentation put an end to worrying & all
that gas is maybe not quite appropriate
in the context of euthanasia maybe not
quite part of the lexicon yet but soon will
be & soon we'll disappear off the face of
this earth & you tell me someone else's
got a green light yellow jersey 3rd wind
frequent liver bonus life must be drizzle
for you, waiting for it to stop when will
my bonus life kick in when a terrorist
hijacks my plane sets off a bomb killing
all of us & will i really die? no of course
not you'll simply disappear never fear
there's plenty of us down here waiting
for your immortal friends to appear on
2nd thoughts i'd rather be plankton that
way at least i could disappear in the sea
& you'll see a blue whale & inside it me
