The Fat Lady’s Request
I, too, will disappear, will
Escape into centuries of darkness.
Come here and give me a cuddle,
Sit on my lap and give me a hug
While we are both still enjoying
This mysterious whirling planet.
And if you find me fat, you find me
Also, easy to find, very easy to find.
— Joyce la Verneend
