SOME PEOPLE ARE IN A RUSH TO GET TO THE GRAVE!

The Overdose

 

I tighten

The tourniquet,

The needle's keen

I pray,

Things fall apart

And drift away,

My flesh turns blue

Then grey,

Death comes out

To play,

And to the grave

I go without delay...

Should I give you some first aid handling? Or is it all too late?
Yes, those who do this are heading for their grave in a light-speed rate. Good one.
