Heaven is busy, please call again later

What if I don’t make it
what if
the virus takes me out?

aha
it’s that what if again
and what is it
but that, what if pain.

Still,
what if
I do go?
well,
I’ll be thankful that
I knew you
and my life wasn’t totally
wasted.

but this is a bit morbid
even for Corvid
and so I shall go on
being John for as long
as I can.
