All But Death, Can Be Adjusted


All but Death, can be Adjusted—
Dynasties repaired—
Systems—settled in their Sockets—

Wastes of Lives—resown with Colors
By Succeeding Springs—
Death—unto itself—Exception—
Is exempt from Change—

    Death is inevitable. It has always been there. So many changes take place but death remains like an everlasting constant!
