Death Is… (after Adrian Henri)


Death is…

Death is feeling numb in the back of a hearse

Death is the sting on the wing of a curse

Death is the worst thing that only gets worse

Death is…

Death is the dumbness of summer days

Death is the last thing Love ever says

Death is the dirge the piper plays

Death is…

Death is the shine on coffin tops

Death is the clunk when the penny drops

Death is what happens when the music stops

Death is

Death is the stupidest person you know

Death is a thug in your house who won’t go

Death is an aching arch of woe

Death is…

Death is for you, Death is for me

Death is the deal for humanity

Death is what makes God your enemy

Death is…
