Eulogy And Epitaph

She was practicing Origami
She was making little swans
But then the swans one day got up and flew away
Just like all of her Don Juans

Whatever happened to our schizoid sister
She put herself into the grave
Now all her "friends" and "lovers" come by
To pay respects they never gave

She was practicing sand sculpture
She built castles by the seas
But when the tides came round the walls came tumbling down
Just like all her fantasies

Whatever happened to our schizoid sister
She put herself into the grave
Now all her "friends" and "lovers" come by
To pay respects they never gave

She was practicing soap and water
She blew bubbles in the air
But those bubbles burst then she saw the worst
Just like in all of her affairs

Whatever happened to our schizoid sister
She put herself into the grave
Now all her "friends" and "lovers" come by
To pay respects they never gave

She was practicing with crayons
She was drawing small stick men
But then she drew the knife with which she took her life
Just like all her lovers near the end

Whatever happened to our schizoid sister
She put herself into the grave
Now all her "friends" and "lovers" come by
To pay respects they never gave
