After I have a shower
I need a shower
So I have another shower
And as I'm having the shower
Of how I'll die one day
And one day everyone I know will also die
And their children and then everyone
Else will die
And the universe will continue on
Unless it dies
Which is theoretically possible
And by possible I mean probable
And by probable I mean inevitable
But sometime soon
I don't know when but sometime soon
I'll have to get out of the shower.
Because someone else needs it.
