Of the death of a young blood

Of the death of a young blood

A Poem by Geo Lawrence

The Grim reaper: He likes them young and full of life...


Death will give you a gift of Fame,

And a fortune of tributes to your name,

Of truths and half truths or painted lies.



Death will give you a gift of Fame,

And a melody of tears and pain,

From those you have left behind.



And as the priest blesses your box,

And as chunks of clay covers you up

You'll be somewhere about---

Perhaps in the whispers of the wind

Or among the evening clouds drifting by

Alas, the fellow with the sickle has been working overtime of late. 200,000 down in the US, many more throughout the world. Actually, you could leave this one just as it stands and deliver a powerful message.
