    "If I decide" by Nabil Shaban

    If I decide to commit suicide
    How shall I do it? ......With blade or with bleach?
    Where shall I do it? .....In the glade or on beach?
    Why shall I do it? .......Am I alien or a leech?
    I’m closed up. No access. Me they can’t reach.
    If I decide to commit suicide
    When shall I do it? .....Before or after the laughter?
    Time blows up. “Oh!” Max says. Me they can’t teach.
    If I decide to commit suicide
    Will I change my mind before or after I die?

    3rd April 1984
