Death tramples only withered old oaks,
weeping willows of wearied widows,
not airborne arrogant,
boastful bold wealthy wizards
or brilliant talents sporting gold?
No, this starving steed hurries greedily in pursuit of newborns, youth, great, small, you, me all consumed as heat of his travels
gravel aggravates at irrepressible seen speed
or stealthily, leisurely in shadows at an almost regal gait
it twirls, then hurls away complete towns
or drowns cities while survivors of wrathful rising waters
it arrives at the party early, late
chopping down hospitable hosts or grateful guests
while bystanders rock on weakened knees
their souls wracked by sobbing bleeds
at the beach a strong swimmers’ body becomes victim to waves, bites, a gallbladder attack cramping ability currents to fight
as death gulps down the blood of the wrong
the right, the innocent, the warriors expending all their collective might
sent into battle
blessed by a God divided? One who is sided against progeny created? Then toasted eternally for partaking of lustful desires
or disobedience to laws he lovingly dictated?

“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
