Free Verse - Death Personified

"Invalid Item

Those who profess fear of death
fear in fact dying
which belongs to the living.
The living speak further of death with dignity
or the dignity of death,
but these too are terms of the living.

Death - pervasive in its unfailing ubiquity,
cool, unruffled, unrivaled in its timelessness;
always in the wings, ever in the background;
unseen in its quickness, sensed in its certainty.
Death has no horse in this race, no hand in this deal,
and yet, it has its place.

Death knows neither dignity nor insult.
It is but a receptor and
receives without comment.

You see, the new hybrid cars, my dear, run, oh, so cheaply;
we’ll even help our country to save oil.
Depreciation of our Caddie swoops, oh, so steeply;
it’s when on the leading edge, you’re on the boil.

While we do our part to help the world save oil,
with money saved, we’ll scrap our vac for a sleek new Dyson.
It’s when on the leading edge, you’re on the boil,
and no more grungy, fiber-laden toxin.

With money saved, we’ll scrap our vac for a sleek new Dyson,
we can cut our cleaning time down to the bone,
with no more grungy, fiber-laden toxin.
They say it has the power of a small cyclone.

We can cut our cleaning time down to the bone;
more time for the new iPod with video capability.
They say it has the power of a small cyclone;
the batteries last forever - awesome dependability.

With a 60 gig iPod with video capability,
we can watch our shows most anywhere we choose.
Its batteries last forever - awesome dependability.
It’s important to stay apace the new breakthroughs.

We can catch the tech updates most anywhere we choose,
depreciation of the old swoops, oh, so steeply,
it’s vitally important to stay apace breakthroughs.
And the new hybrid cars, my dear, run, oh, so cheaply.
