Death Rides a Pale Horse
By: Lisa M. Gordier
(April 6, 2020)

Death comes
when not expected
with an unexpected response

The victim
to be suicide
turns the gun to him

Death has been killed
and the victim left
now becomes Death

A life among immortals
an icon known as Death
is now his fate

Taking souls
he never wanted
sending them away

Using scales of judgment
to mete each soul collected
to heaven, hell or purgatory
