The Grim(ish) Reaper!


Throughout your life I'll keep tapping you on the shoulder,
I'll either get you when you're young 
Or I'll get you when you're older,
For I am death
And you're supposed to fear me,
But I'll let you into a little secret,
(My bark is louder than my bite) if you come near me.
Cos once I've bitten and the lights go out,
There's no turning back and you won't feel nowt!
So don't be afraid when your life is finished,
You'll be cool as a cucumber with your fears diminished,
You won't feel hot and you won't feel cold,
In fact you won't feel anything if truth be told!
You'll be free of pressure and free of strife,
So just try and enjoy the after life!

    nowt is new to me. maybe i'll use it sometime if i remember it. i like the poem and i like the philosophy, if that's what it's called. i like the rhyming. i have a poemhunter friend R.G.Bell who would be glad to share with you a short story he wrote about the grim reaper (he calls The Harvester) paying an unusual house call. let me know if you are interested. and i wrote a related poem which you are invited to read.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
