Media vita in morte sumus



They hung Death from a pole

in every little town in America

and all the people came


They took X-Rays of Death and then

prescribed things for people

who got near Death


Or maybe they stood in a circle around Death

and threw stones and chanted at him for some reason

Perhaps they were angry that they had to wait

in line for so long to torture him.


Look, it is alright to kill Death over and over but

you know

He will be with and among us

today and all the todays


Forgive Death

He has no sin at all and

(it’s funny)

He falls in love with

everyone he kisses.
