RESUSCITATION, a poem

          Don’t resuscitate
          leave me to my fate
          the natural way for me
          stop the heroic treatments
          delaying the final act

          No curtain calls
          after the end
          what do you expect
          do tell the world
          if I appear

          But please never anyone fear
          enjoy a wine or a beer
          and think of me over here
          because nothing kills
          the essential soul
