Death Does Not Discriminate - Poem by Juan Olivarez

There's no racial profiling,
Where deaths involved.
He shows up smiling,
With the problem solved.

Yellow, or brown, white, or black,
Color doesn't mean a thing.
whether you live in a mansion, or in a shack,
You'll still hear the doorbell ring.

Death does not discriminate,
He takes everybody one and all.
Your name is written in his book of fate,
Sooner or later he will call.
