Glen Martin Fitch
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.
(though I seem morbid,
what deal have YOU made
with that Reaper dude?
