Not too long ago my friend and I
We sat like Humpty Dumpties on the stile
We watched the smoke-crossed cars go by
Sucking on a lollipop all the while.
When he had sucked and so had I
We watched the man across wave and say hi
We saw his face stretch into a smile
Sucking on the lollipop all the while.
Soon the friend left, the lolly half-done
I peeked to see if the man wanted to share the fun
I watched the man across wave and say hi
And jump from the thirteenth to end his life
Who am I kidding, it was far too long ago
To remember if he smiled as he let himself go.
