Death Came Calling - Poem by Julius Odunusi

Death Came Calling

Tuesday, October 4,2011 - 2: 00PM

Death came, calling
On our doors knocking
All men dodging
Hiding, crawling and running
But, why? !
Death said…
"For all men must die! "

Upon the heads of men
Deaths fearsome mien
Indeed, all doth fret when
Death lurks on yon bend
But, why? !
Death said…
"For all men must die! "

Off with his crown and head
On and on, Death's eerie dirge
And men tremble with dread
When death looms only just ahead
But why? !
Death said…
"For all men must die! "

But why? !
This a dead man's cry
His eyes no more to see earth and sky
And death said, to you I am most nigh
So ask not why
For all men must die!
