    what do you do if you think yr gonna die 

    do you just lay in the hospital and listen to the beeps and the boops and watch people stroll around and whisper to each other?

    or do you go see your friends.

    the people with the flags that have your name on em. big and blue and red.

    and what of the people around you who are being paid to protect you?

    do you worry you might infect them?

    do you believe them when they say, it is our duty to protect you so anything you want to do is fine with us.

    our family will understand.

    especially the children.

    once theyre old enough.

    and speaking of family, wouldnt it have been a tad more romantic

    and even downright beautiful

    if instead of driving around the block a few times to wave to random strangers

    and instead of having your doctors lie on your behalf

    and get caught lying because doctors are terrible liars

    you drove back home

    fast as you can

    better yet, use the copter – that big fat green whirlybird

    and you fly back real quick to the white house

    and you walk off stairs of marine one and there you are met by your wife

    your ridiculously beautiful wife.

    the one who probably hates your guts for getting her the disease that has no cure.

    it doesnt matter how few people it kills, on average

    it’s still deadly

    and she says if i dont die i vill kill you for doing this to me

    and there you two are

    on the white house grass

    hair blowing in the wind

    and you plant a big old sloppy wet kiss on her

    and hug

    and you kiss her again, but on the cheek

    and walk back to the copter

    whose blades never stopped

    hop in

    and fly back to walter reed

    and when they take a picture of you signing a letter

    tell em it’s to yr girl

    begging her forgiveness

    for everything.
