    Razors pain you
    Rivers are damp
    Acids stain you
    And drugs cause cramp
    Guns aren't lawful
    Nooses give
    Gas smells awful
    You might as well live

    I think of this poem sometimes when I'm feeling suicidal. It sums up life in a nutshell.

    Cool poem. Wasn't it used in some film (don't know which)?? It seems really familiar
