One never really thinks about death, but he is at are back door waiting so unexpectantly.

The Deceiver    




Once again he duth spurn

Upon the heavy laden limbs

A blanket of coldness

Covering the appendages of our time


He comes so unexpectedly

Teasing with his moods

Confusing the new born

Appearing never to let go


Once again we wait for his departure

Only to be laden with whiteness

To be slapped by needle like fingers

And be wrapped in his covers

Reviewed by Paul Berube 3/11/2005

Death definitely is not bashful but as death takes so does He create. Very well written. With two deaths in the family within the past three weeks I've had many similar thoughts.
