Who Wants To Live For Ever? - for the immortal comp

 
I have had the offer
Of a life with the immortal
Hosts in heaven
Living for ever
 
I’ve been threatened  
With eternal damnation
In the bowels of Hell
Rotting for ever
 
The zombie apocalypse
Immortality as a dead person
Eating live people
Steeped in irony
 
Dracula offered me
Immortality as a vampire
To bleed my victims and drink
But his offer really sucked
 
I do not seek immortality
I do not want immortality
It might be cool for a few
Centuries or so
 
but you’d have
To watch everyone you
Love, age and die.  
That would seriously  
take its toll
 
It wouldn’t be long before
You’d pray for death
The biggest problem with Immortality  
Would be fuckin Boredom
