Two Proclamations on Death
On Cigarettes and Life
Here is what I say tonight about Cigarettes and Life:
"Dying is a very trying time.
It starts when young and ends when you're dead.
In between, there is time to reconsider the first and worry bought the later.
But along the way is everything that matters."
On Wine and Life
Here is what I say tonight about Wine and Life:
"Death brings all of us into line.
But the poor drunks die slower than others in time.
It's not who you are, it's what you do that God likes best.
So make your water into wine, and then take your rest."
