Pass the Oxygen Cannulae

Fio always scans the tabloid headlines as she wait in the supermarket checkout line. How else would she have learned that Elvis is still alive, Hillary Clinton hosted a space alien at the White House, and the world will end in ten days? Or about the "SAD LAST DAYS" of this celebrity or that, with the implication that something monumentally tragic was happening?

Come off it! It's death! Everybody's last days are sad!

It will come

A baby hours old
One hundred plus years you have seen
An athlete, a dancer, an actor
While you’re sleeping, or cooking
On a stage while you’re rockin’
Might even be while you’re writing
Your day can be happy
Your day can be sad
Maybe some do, most don’t
Know when death will come knockin’
