There are Some Things by John D. Robinson

I can guarantee,
I won’t be killed by a
Great White shark as
I swim in the English
Channel,
I will never rob a bank,
I guarantee that I am
without ambition of
any kind and I love
cats and wine,
I can guarantee
that I won’t perish in
outer-space or by a
pistol duel at dawn
or make love to
Hepburn,  hear Lady
Billie Holiday sing
or hold Monroe’s
hands,
fuck! there is so
much I can guarantee,
towering over
everything,
the invincible
inevitable
fact
that I will
100%
guarantee,
die.
