Poem that asks the reader a question about the reason behind the death of a man , then the answer is revealed why in the poem

I saw a man just lying there ,lying there was he .
With a backpack on and dying , dying there was he .
Alone on an empty road ,In the country was he .
There was no one else around and nothing could I see .
Nothing but this dying man and almost dead was he .
Nothing could be done now , he was dead as dead could be .

So why did he die you must wonder , why did he die .
The backpack was a parachute thatís the reason why
I saw a man who fell down , from high up in the sky .
Itís a long way down to the ground if youíre wondering why
The cause of death was written down , he fell from the sky .
Suicide or an accident , only God knows why .
