Death would be too sweet a release
It would stick to my teeth
It would coat my gums
My tongue would go numb

Much better the bitter
The slow sip with a kicker
A continual life
To gag on at night

My death much too easy to chew
And swallow too
The bliss I'd recieve
Makes it too hard to grieve

Life much dryer to choke
My thirst parched throat
And the spice burns my eyes
Reminds me I'm alive
