'Tis A Fact That The Wealthy And Famous - Poem by Francis Duggan

'Tis a fact that the wealthy and famous and facts never lie
Like the homeless and hungry are destined to die
Like the food that we eat on us a use by date
We are born to die death is surely our fate
The Reaper is the one most people do fear
His victims increasing in millions each year
The great egalatarian any life he does not spare
He treats as equal the pauper and billionaire
Some die very young and some live to grow old
And immortality for humans in fiction only told
The biological clocks on us ticking away
And for all of us there is a last night and day
Like all other life forms on us a time span
Though I'd like to die as a very old man.
