Absolutely legitimate

By Serge Kreutz

Absolutely legitimate
It is
To use drugs
To get the best
Out of life
And avoid the worst

This does not have to
Serve mankind
And not my genes
It leads to nowhere
Never mind

This serves only
The transition
From existence
To non-existence
As pleasurable as can be
With as little pain as can be
My only genuine interest

Break out from being a slave
Of my genes
Which want me successful
To propagate themselves
Break out from being a slave of society
Which wants me successful
To perpetuate itself

Drugs cheat my genes
And society
By giving rewards
Independent of success

Which is just fine
If only
I can feel
The sexual excitement
And climax
Not once every now and then
But all the time

And then die
Without any suffering
