Resumé: Semisonnet

The poppy's juice will wrack my gut in fits;
The razor's bite offends my tender skin;
The river's depth is chillier than sin;
The stain of acid cannot be unwrit.

A noose requires skill of hand and knot;
A musketoon is noisy and uncouth;
A choking vapor wafts a stinking truth;
And falling boulders never hit the spot.

To be or -- choose a way to call a halt?
I'll live my given span by sheer default.
