Death in Diapers
Corpses don’t have sphincter control.
When you die, everything leaks out of you like an Otter Pop in the summer sun.
Everybody is executed in diapers.
Some say this is “dehumanizing”.
Huggies humanize. Diapers do dirty duty during development.
Diapers are dear friends for the first five and final five years of life.
Each diaper marks a few hours more. The dead don’t need Depends.
Execution extinguishes experience. Suicide snuffs out souls.
Murder makes some men into meat. It makes other men into murderers.
The diaper is a detail.
