Her Highness Contemplates a Seemly End

Her Highness Contemplates A Seemly End

Nobility in dying is something I shan’t botch,
for I know it shall be one that the whole wide world will watch.
I cannot go by fire, for I’m sure I would be screaming
as the water quenched the fire and set my flesh to steaming.

So unseemly and so crass. I’d find it unappealing.

So, too, a rope around my neck, hanging from the ceiling.
Jumping from a roof won’t do. Nor will a gun nor pills.
Every sort of suicide just sports too many ills.

It’s clear that death by avalanche is the only one

that will really suit me when the day is done.
A certain swift clean fall of snow seems such a pristine death.
A queenly mode of dying. Such a regal final breath!

      That’s the fun of the prompts. They suggest associations my mind would otherwise not make. Sometimes a bit scary, though. All those hidden places in the mind. It is like spelunking.

    Judy, you’re far too young to be thinking of such things. If you saw a snow avalanche you’d revert to your leittle girl’s golden curls days and start making snowmen and snow balls. xx Anton
