Musing - People Will Be Left To Contemplate Who Was That Guy? - Poem by Paul Warren

How did you end your days they may at last say
Was it as easy as slipping off asleep as you drift away
Or was it with some suffering that you had to endure
When the time was a struggle and death was something to implore

Will your name be spoken once you are ended in your earthly stay?
Or will it be that you are forgotten with no-one left to say
In the end I will matter not if a king or a pauper
People will be left to contemplate who was that guy as they ought a

    how will t matter in any case rich liked loved or hated the man is dead
    Some women
    consider sex
    just for pleasure
    a game
    to challenge men
    who think
    they are muscular
    but can't stand
    more than
    a few counted moments
    say
    they stand for ever
