Death’s Chariot

Death’s chariot overtakes
The travails of living.
I kindly stop and wait awhile
For it to take me willingly.

I called for it to halt.
“Could you give me a lift?”
“You, a tenant, must first pay dues.”
Says its rider. “Then I’ll give lift.”

Solemnly, it goes on…
The rider black, and all.
“Why deny my request?” Says I.
“Me, a lonely wanderer, alone?”

Nevertheless I still tread
This road where death’s headed.
Thinking about destinations
Till fate takes me there.

    Ah, ha! We may never get to decide the time. The shunned willingness made a unique angle here.
