The Grim Reaper’s Invitation

grimreaper123321

come lately, come stately
come humble or proud
come running or crawling
come quiet or loud
come from the battleground
come from your bed
wherever you come from
you’ll come away dead
come with your mother
come with your child
come tamely or gamely
or willing or wild
come on your own
or come with a friend
if you like it or not
you’ll arrive in the end.

      1. I think that’s exactly what death would say. There’s a lot of stuff you left out. You could have gone on forever. But the end of the poem was absolutely true: if you like it or not you’ll arrive in the end. No sense hiding from it. 😀

  1. This is certainly not in bad taste.
    A very enjoyable and interesting poem.
    If people can’t handle reading about death
    maybe they should stick to reruns of
    The Wooden Tops and definitely not read
    my stuff! 😎
