As Close as I Can get

       As Close as I Can Get                                         

            From the moment we are born
            We start to die
            That’s nothing new
            It’s just the timing of our ends
            Creates the fuss –
            The kind we get from a
            Comedian who knows the
            But forgets the joke
            Or occasionally
            If we’re very very lucky
            From someone
            Who can keep a beat
