Charlie's Wish

Charlie had a death wish,
He had his fill of life
And was prepared to
Meet his maker.

Only problem was
His maker was not read
For Charlie.

Charlie's car stalled
When he locked himself
In his garage.

Charlie's gun jammed
While it was
In his mouth.

Charlie's rope broke
When he knocked
His chair from under himself.

The firemen came
When Charlie tried to
Jump from the 20th floor.

The hit men took
The wrong address
And killed the wrong man.

Seeing a pattern,
Charlie accepted
That he wasn't going to
Die anytime soon
So he went on with his life.

One day as
Charlie was walking
To his fiancee's home
From the job he loved,
He got hit by a bus,
Then the ambulance taking
Charlie to the hospital
Got hit by a train,
And to top it all off,
The Medivac helicopter
Stalled and crashed.

Charlie had a death wish
And his wish was granted.

Just goes to show that you can never be too sure about what you think the ending will be. Wonderful poem, - Mosk
