Dying of consumption

dying of consumption-20160712 - 9150-2Happy ending, nice and tidy
It’s a rule I learned in school
Get your money every Friday,
Happy endings are the rule.

So divide up those in darkness
From the ones who walk in light
Light ’em up boys, there’s your picture
Drop the shadows out of sight.

–The Threepenny Opera
