I wouldn't want
To live for ever
I'd get bored, I think
After a few hundred decades

"Have you climbed Everest?"
"Yes, twenty times.
And the underwater ones as well."

"Alright, then. Swum the Amazon?"
"First thing I did, followed by the Nile."
"Flown?"
"Doesn't everyone?"

"Try the fugu."
"My favourite fish."
"Seriously?"
"I eat it every birthday."

Maybe, instead
I'll live for eighty years
And live more intensely
Than an immortal

Unless they find
A way to let us walk
With stars.

So we wouldn't have
To look and wonder
What they think
Of too-long
Lives.
i think i'd get bored of eternity.
maybe after a few years.

It would get boring, wouldn't it? What if you had someone with you?

They would have to have a really good sense of humour

This is seriously good - loving the tone :) I'm sure you'd get bored. And maybe, with eternal life, you wouldn't do anything worth doing, because you'd be thinking you had centuries

It definitely works. I think it added to the piece the sense of boredom one can get after doing everything once thought impossible.
