It's Death Again

It's Death again - He's always there -
Watching, waiting - e'er the stare!
Every time I look behind
Or reach to pull the window blind,
I catch a glimpse of grubby hood -
A little clue to where he stood;
The glint of light that caught the scythe.
Perhaps if I could pay a tithe…
But O! no use, he'll never go.
The adamant phantom; don't you know
He will but wait until it's time
For me to hear His fateful chime? -
The toll that claims my destiny,
To Hail: 'You're next, it has to be…'

Hmmm the one I read years ago which is written on my back is a little different. It's The toll that's only meant for me, to say: you're next, it has to be. Guess there will always be slight variations in such poems.

Death is certain. It is there at the end. No one can escape. Good poem, reminds me of my poem called, 'What is Death? '
