Sidewalks

When I am on the sidewalk
I sometimes wish
That a truck would hit me
In a tragic accident.

Saving me the trouble
    The guilt
        The responsibility
            Of doing it myself.

            I will do it myself
        The responsibility
    The guilt
Is too much trouble.

What a tragic accident
This truck has hit me
I sometimes wish
I had stayed on the sidewalk.
