Inconsiderate now, are we?


If I were to commit suicide by train, I doubt I'd care who was late for work. And I really dislike the second line.


A Re-cycling Appeal to ‘Jumpers’


By Laura King


Oringinal here.





Suicide is gainless


Unimaginative, clich├ęd, brainless.


Now you may say it's in bad taste


To question why this bloody waste


Of humanity


Is at worst termed 'cowardly'


Or criticise the wretched whose idea of glory


Is to incur commuter curses for train delay.


But to anyone who wants to die I say


Offer yourself to Cancer Research today!


Turn feeling useless into being useful


Leave a legacy above the miserable


Ensure your life wasn't late-aborted in vain


If the Buddhists are right, you’ll only have to do it all again


And your DNA is a much closer match

Than that of the non-consenting lab rat.


So think of humanity and maybe we'll think of you


Commemorate you with a bit of a ‘do'


Attended by all the lives you’ve saved


Who’ll drink to your life beyond the grave
