Death, Dying, Devil, Demon, Dead

Death, Dying, Devil, Demon, Dead

A Poem by Saichiro Wolftotem

Dying ways.


Impact from an auto crash,

Shot by thugs for fifty cash.

Cliff dive into a nest of snakes,

Eternal naptime after mommy shakes.

It's warmer at the heart of fires,

Jury's needle for trial liars.

Peaceful sleep at eighty-two,

A bite of sandwich, face turns blue.

Drunk on boats will sleep with fish,

Craigslist cannibals eat their dish.

Industry accident limb from limb,

A trip down stairs while lights were dim.

Get lost on a healthy hike,

Tsunami hit and broke the dike.

Snow blind hazard heeded not,

Wild cats should not be bought.

An AK brought to high school grounds,

Fifty pills to stop a frown.

Each of us will meet our end,

Where will your ending begin?

Your poem had a good flow to it, I loved the last line "Where will your ending begin?" definitely had me thinking. Thanks for sharing.

I found this strangely entertaining (for lack of a better word). The flow was really nice and it caused it to just kind of lead into the next line. I liked how you covered the many different ways death could come instead of just focusing on one. It made it more interesting to on those that didn't just come out and say it straight.

Thank ya.
This is too well thought out for you not to be okay. ;)
I liked it, it has good rhythm all the way through. A simple and thought provoking question at the end. We never know do we?
