Oh my gosh, you described the exact feelings and experience I have whenever I have an idea at this blinking moment and then it escapes me! Frustrating, isn't it?

Don't take life too seriously, you'll never get out alive

I love pieces like this that use little linguistic flourishes without resorting to distorting the meaning of the piece to do so.  I'm quite impressed by your ability to include things like rough rhyme, rhythm, euphony, consonance, et cetera without stretching for words that fit.  It feels like it came very natural, and that's good.
