Look At Death's Face It Is Grinning At Us. - Poem by RIC BASTASA

oh the fortunes you
keep for long
the money you saved
for all those
passing years

the mansion you
just built
a new car to add
for your collections
the beach house
the farm

the fat cow and the
race horse
the flower garden
and the fountain facing
east
the feng sui and
the talisman

all in vain
you are taken now
into nowhere
and we do not even
know
if you are coming
back

you must have
miscalculated life
and look at death's
face
it is grinning at
us.
