If you find me dead or dying
Shoot the winning shot.
There's no use in thinking twice,
I've given all I've got.
The hot revolver burns my face,
It sizzles on my skin.
If you are any friend to me,
You'll shoot and do me in.
The good fight that has long been faught
Will bring me martyrdom.
I fucked up the first two shots,
Add one and three's the sum.

Notes: This poem was written on Wednesday, October 16, 2013. It's about the choice to be happy, and being unable to see that as a choice because you're stuck in depression. The only way out seems to be suicide, and you beat the odds because you mess it up. You need a friend to help you to martyrdom.
