    Well not the type of death I would wish for but a good, thought provoking poem-and memorable.

    This is the expeditious world; there need everyone, righteous rulers to volunteers, child to old; but we need to die as young man's death; this world needs the active hands; those are by born lazy no needs them; those are the king of glittering orating no needs them; those are want to live as parasite no needs them; this world needs very diligent hands

    Let me die a young man's death
    not a free from SlN tiptoe in
    candle wax and waning death
    not a curtains drawn by angels borne
    'what a nice way to go' death.....great expressive;

    CONGRATULATIONS, dear great Poet! Why so much about the melancholy dead?
    But you make a best Ode to this phenomena. Several stages of age you are declamating here. WOW! You speak beautiful English. Such a nicest listening to your voice, dear Poet. Perhaps I am flattering, but that is the truth. A 10 Ful Score. WOW! you are #30 on top 500, WOW!

    When I'm 73
    and in constant good tumour
    may I be mown down at dawn
    by a bright red sports car
    on my way home
    from an allnight party
    a v ery good poem. tony

    Finally, my paycheck is $ 8,500? A working 10 hours per week online. My brother’s friend had an average of 12K for several months, he work about 22 hours a week. I can not believe how easy it is, once I try to do so. This is what I do.........
