I can’t solve my problems
So I’m going to kill myself,
In a memorable way. Go down in history
Then I’ll break out of my dullness. Just once.

I’ll wait for bright sunshine so the images are clear
Crowds of people will stand in expectation
Mobile phones poised. At the ready.
Selfie sticks at the right angle. A memorable moment.

I won’t be forgotten because they’ll share the occasion
Filming me. Writhing in agony, screaming. The real thing
Putting it on Facebook (even better than a funny cat)
Twitter could make my death go viral.
