Treasure Island

Jacques Sprenkie Mateya

(September / Dennilton)

Death of death


Death died death
A tragic death of unusual death

Cemetery moaned, howled and wept alone
Its tears all over the ground
Death! Its sole hunter and soul provider
Graveyard's convulsion of shame

As if death was new
Death was old had to die too
Nothing last forever

There was nothing new
Clouds gathered but never rained
No rain wanted to clean the blood on death
The unusual act of death
Even birds of the feather fights each other
Death died, all were dazed for death of death

    AS death is an everyday occurence, those who witness it that way grow somewhat immune to its passing there so its effect is dead to them. Yet each death is a new loss to the living.Well written. (Report) Reply

The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
