A Viking’s Death

If you ask a person how they want to die,

Most people quite agree.

The best way to go is quietly,

Sleeping in, utterly carefree.

 

But if you ask a Viking, it’s a different matter,

As this is what they’ll say.

Die with honour and vigour, sword in your hand,

And it’s worth having to go away.

 

Away to Valhalla where you’ll sit among,

The greatest warriors ever to die.

Odin himself is sat not far from you,

As you listen to the battle cry.

 

So what will it be, if you had to choose?

Sleeping peacefully in, or the never-ending booze?
