one from the "Preacher" side
a little grim
The cleric meets death early and often
Death from stress,
Death from carelessness
Death in a young girl from an old person’s disease
Suidcide, homicide, SIDS, AIDS
a blow to the head,
“police assisted suicide”,
Death in all its loveliness…
While you would think he’d get used to it—
He prays he never does
