Yeah, it's important to live,
if you must know, but more
important is to live whether
in the end you do know.

Just breathe and you'll get the message.
Just eat or stand up and stab
the person across the table
with the bread knife. You'll know
and not be sorry because you'll know
and want to laugh how easy
you can turn the bread knife
on yourself.
