        Please don't go slashing your jugular
        And dripping all over the floor.
        Don't cut your wrists at the bathroom sink
        And cover the faucets with gore.
        Just take a large dose of sleeping pills,
        Then faint with your head down the loo.
        Please leave the bathroom just as you found it,
        For others are following you.

        Just because you're a suicide. . .

                "A Plea for Order" by Heather Wood, 1986.

        Through early morning fog I see
        Visions of the things to be,
        The pains that are withheld for me,
        I realize and I can see...
                That suicide is painless,
                It brings on many changes
                And I can take or leave it if I please.

                        "Suicide Is Painless" (Mash Theme Song) by Mike Altman and Johnny Mandel
