How natural is Death?

"He died of natural causes", it is often said....
No matter counselor, he is still dead.

Oh yes sir, was my reply,
All God's children gonna die!

Many die while still awake
Not an honest breath do they take.

105 is longevity, many get there easily.
How lonely that must be.

New Orleans play trumpets and swing
Dancing down the street with the dead!

When time comes, it won't matter...
It'll all be silent chatter.

Natural death!
No more breath.
