The Mercurial Type

I’ve never known you to be unresponsive before.

In fact, you’ve always been the mercurial type.

You’d always act on a whim, move forward without much thought for the consequences.

But your reckless actions have finally caught up with you and now you’ve paid the ultimate price, leaving me to mop up after you, like some bottom-feeder.

All I can say is that death becomes you.
