The American Dream

I don’t think about suicide
I mean, not really

I don’t dwell on suicide
“is it Tuesday?”

I have thought about suicide
I mean, who hasn’t?

I’ve thought about suicide once or twice
it’s only natural

I have thoughts about suicide
they are not mine

I’ve thought about suicide a few times
“I’ll kiss you if it’s Tuesday”

I’ve thought about suicide a lot
I am no longer The Young Man

I think about suicide constantly
because of what Mommy and Daddy did

I am definitely going to suicide
“I just want to get everything over with”

I am already dead
“Well, I guess that just about wraps it up. I mean, for better or worse, this is a comedy, and I don’t think we’d better go any further.”
