Members Only - Poem by maggie oke

Living in a club called the living
We didn't choose the members but they're here
Fate is on the door
And you're not coming in
If someone, something, somewhere
Didn't want you near

So make the most of your entry
No refund, no regrets and no exchange

If you can
Try your best
At least to stick it
There's people cheating stealing dying
Doing what they can
For their hands on your ticket
