Found this when I was browsing my stories folder on my laptop. I'd forgotten that I'd written it!

The man ate a sandwich,
He snacked and smiled,
He ate that sandwich,
But then he choked,
Poor dude,
On a bit of bacon, he croaked.

The woman knitted,
She knitted a sweater,
Then she got up,
And she flitted.
Made a cuppa tea,
Now she’s D. E. A. D.

Two ordinary deaths, it seems,
But little do people know,
It was all for show.
