LET'S MAKE A DEAL


Though seldom seen 
he's always hanging 'round.
You're never safe.
He'll elbowed his way in.
I fear if I deny him 
he'll confound my plan,  
surprise me with his killer grin.
I keep out of his way,  
because I hope
if I ignore him,  
he'll ignore me too.
I tease him sometimes 
(it's a way to cope)
a moth and flame game,  
one cannot undo.
I fear he likes his humor 
gross and grim.
I've lately thought 
 'Should I make him my friend
till he gets bored with me? ' 
I bet the end will come too soon 
when I've forgotten him. 
I ask 
(though I seem morbid,
prying, rude)
what deal have YOU made 
with that Reaper dude?

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
