I swear it was an accident.
He’d still be living if
He hadn’t stood so near to
The top edge of the cliff.

I see it in slow motion how
I accidentally stumbled,
But, oh, you should have seen the way
Onto the rocks he tumbled.

He first performed a backward flip
And then a pirouette,
And then a double somersault
I never will forget.

And then on to the jutting rock
His body flatly thumped,
Much better than the other three
I accidentally bumped.
