Reluctant Ode

I did not know you very well.

I did not think much when you fell.

But this I know,

‘tis true

‘tis true:

You should have whizzed and zipped right through.

I did not want to feel so swell.

I did not care to also dwell.

But this I know,

‘tis true

‘tis true:

You had to get your due on cue.

I must not crow with glee they say.

I rather should be made to pay.

But this I know,

‘tis true

‘tis true:

My patience failed, so splat! Not shoo!

I cannot see my sins and pray.

In fact, this victory’s made my day.

But this I know,

‘tis true

‘tis true:

Your body’s laid out flat like glue.

And now ‘tis said I’m made of frost.

I shed no tear for one life lost.

But this I know,

‘tis true

‘tis true:

I would repeat my feud with you.
