I Drew the Death Card
I drew the Death Card
Of ghostly ghastly supernatural significance
Flavors your choice, take your time
Time stands still
Shuffle the cards, draw down Death
No escape, your Death awaits.
Make a new beginning
Discretely discard moth-eaten memories
Old-fashioned outfits, lousy lovers
Pitch them all, slowly recover
Time to shine
Your new day is around the corner
Turn it into your new conclusion.
Death is both old and new
A beginning butterfly, our due demise
Gaping gasp or hopeful heartbeat
The one part of life we cannot cheat
Is this when?
If the future knowing is so important
Then why did we have yesterday?
