Mr. Lazarus Is Sick of Cleaning Up After Lady Lazarus's Failed Suicide Attempts

by Matt Medina

SHE'S DONE IT again.
One year in every ten
She manages it-----
A sort of idiot miracle
The way she just lies there
Pretending to be dead
Her skin all smeared with
Her arms a fake red
Peel off that stupid
Look on your face
Oh, my bad actor!
This mess
This ketchup smell
It’s not going to vanish in a day
Another thing
I am allergic to your cat
I put her out three times already — she needs to go
I know dying is an art and all
But community college theater
Well. . . you're just not good at it
You should take up accounting
