His death came without fanfare,

He died with as little as a tear,

He was not afraid; he had no more fears,

His death was for him the end of a very bad year…


Weight was a contributing factor,

His arteries clogged with what he did eat,

And eat he did of great amounts of red meat,

His death he knew would come,

He did not dread this particular feat…


His lifelong personal quote,

“Why lose weight, as my life will anyway end,

That being my eventual fate”,

As now even his quote is quite mote…
