This Citizen Does Not Exist

This citizen does not exist:
He may pretend that he's not dead.
It drives you nearly round the twist

To listen to the man insist
He is alive. That's why I said
'This citizen does not exist' –

Statistically, he's off the list.
The will to live, eat daily bread,
It drives you. Nearly round the twist,

I told you that the general gist
Of death is more than bath or bed.
This citizen does not exist –

He cannot shake me (or his fist).
He's playing havoc with my head.
It drives you nearly round the twist –

He's in the graveyard, can't be missed:
No more! Please read these laws instead:
This citizen does not exist!
(It drives you nearly round the twist.)
