HOPE AT DEATH

What good was it to be a “popular Joe”

When ghastly death, life’s final, unfriendly foe

Gives you that nasty, odd nod, and you most go?

2

Did popularity keep death far away?

Was it so fair it kept death at distant bay?

Did fame make death late, for even one more day?

3

The well-known die as do the many unknown

The grim reaper comes for every seed that’s sown

He, the product of sin, claims each as his own.

4

Death knows the address of the rich and the poor

Knows each cell phone number, each palatial door

Finds its victims on the first or the fifth floor

5

Preparation for death is not fleeting fame

Not to have acquired a saucy house-hold name

Not to have piled up gold, silver (all the same)

6

One has suffered death for all, poor and well-to-do

Christ is your only hope when death comes soon for you

Christ is all you’ll need when death’s door you pass through.
