What Death Failed


Death has never failed;
Until I found it nailed
Death has never frowned;
Until I found it crowned
Death has never fainted;
Until I found it tainted

Death has never failed;
Until I found it trailed
Death has never killed;
Until I found it grilled
Death has never feared a lad;
Until it beckoned my dad
