Tina Turner
The Villanelle of the Weeping Martyrs

I think I should start writing my will
But I have absolutely nothing to bequest
Because I can't get past my inexorable ill.

My whole life started to go downhill
When my mum said "I'm simply the best".
I think I should start writing my will.

I have all these abandoned ambitions to fulfill,
Suffering from success and compulsive self-interest
But I can't get past this inexorable ill.

Maybe mother should've consumed that abortion pill
Then we wouldn't be so depressed.
I think I should start writing my will.

Start growing me a solemn daffodil,
I'm coming home to my grave and rest
Because I can't get past my inexorable ill.

There I can join with all the other landfill,
Slowly rot for the worms to digest.
I think I should start writing my will
Because I can't get past my inexorable ill.
