A Peaceful End

I want to die peacefully in my sleep,
Like my grandfather did without a fuss.
I don’t want to die screaming in terror,
Like all the passengers did on his bus.

About the Poem

A poke (a cross between a poem and a joke, for those who aren't keeping up) about a bus driver who fell asleep at the wheel. It does happen, but thankfully not very often.
