Raison d'Etre

Why undertake to write another verse,
When Undertaker Time and his black hearse
Will bear your poems to their final resting place
Interred without a stone, in some small weed-thick space?

Because—regardless of the tolling knell,
As long as there are whispered tales to tell
Brave poetry can help deter brute Time
A moment more until he tolls his final chime.
