DEATH Listen UP!

You have robbed me ENOUGH!

Death, you are a slimy bastard .

Death, you Bitch Queen from Hell.

I am not shattered.

I dare not listen for your bell.

Photo by Warren Curle 2018

You have stolen more than one friend

You have taken one too many kin

True I do not comprehend,

that in the end, you must win

But listen Death,

you had no RIGHT!

Did you have to use much stealth,

bravo you showed such might.

Ten in one year,

This is too much to bear!

Are you even pretending to hear!

Do you even care?

Moon over Cheam Wetlands 2021 by Warren Curle

You are exposed,

go your Way

I will remain composed,

come what may.

Authors Note

Remember to thank those you care for.

Let them know you care and are grateful for them.

Death is always lurking in the shadows and can

come at any time.

This poem is dedicated to all I have lost in the last year.

This poem may appear in other publications.

Respectfully Bruce Curle
