Your body is going to die your body is going to die your body is going to die

He doesn’t seem to mind
yelling it on the high street
drinking from a Costa Coffee cup.
There’s a child holding the hand
of a man wearing a Captain America T-shirt
walking towards a bloke selling candy floss.
YOUR BODY IS GOING TO DIE.
YOUR BODY IS GOING TO DIE.
YOUR BODY IS GOING TO DIE.
The man wearing a Captain America T-shirt
buys one bag of blue and one bag of pink.
YOUR BODY IS GOING TO DIE.
He takes another sip
from his Costa Coffee cup and chokes.
