Another faint acquaintance,
Jeremy, is out of it,
Lucky nonexistent ghost.
Life is too much, not enough.
I heard he jumped off a bridge.
I see him falling cleanly,
Perhaps actually diving,

Muscular forty-something,
Brawny Aussie carpenter.
Left behind? A pretty wife,
Two good-looking kids (girl, boy),
An insurance policy
Said to cover suicide.
Some of us won't do as well.
