besides being a great name
for a punk band

suicide tourism

is a growing trend

in switzerland

germans
brits
and americans

flocking to the monstrance
of neutrality
and lax euthanasia legislation
with a penchant for hiding
nazi-looted art

to eat chocolates laced
with sodium phenobarbital

“going to switzerland”
has become a euphemism
for offing oneself in the UK

(God, how I adore my saucy British cousins.)

Isn’t it funny that in allegedly-civilized
free nations
their countrymen
don’t even have the liberty
of choosing a dignified death?

*elected officials take note

when the power grid fails
we’ll be coming
to eat you
