Doug “Rabbit” Sutherland, Minister of Reality



A terminal condition called
Old Age is on my tail!
With three days left to live I feel
Great pressure not to fail!

And, so, I have decided to be
Happy ’til the end! —
To smile and laugh and giggle ’til
I finally ascend!

And, if, three days from now I find
I’m still not drawing flies,
I’ll tack another three days on
And postpone my goodbyes.

And, three days hence, if once again
I’m still not feeding worms,
I’ll add another three to find
I’ve lately come to terms

With something that’s eluded me!
It’s simple, yet sublime!
The Answer is to find your joy
Just three days at a time.
