'Look Deeper' - Poem by Michael Micmac Mccrory

‘look deeper’

The old woman cried
The young people cried
The old man said aye
It will happen to us all
So why do you cry?

The young people looked at the old man
It should be you in there
You’re the one they should be burying
The old man said aye
Why should I care
It should be you that’s worrying

All the young people grew old
They died one by one
At each graveside the old man said aye
They should have looked deeper
They would have seen
I’m the grim reaper; aye
