For whom the bell tolls

When Death comes knocking at your door
The inevitable and rarely welcome visitor
 Rail,resist or recoil at Her call
But succumb you must
 To Her chilling embrace
Cold comfort in being clasped
To Her bosom.

Larger than life
No hail fellow well met
Before Her will we all shrivel
As She rolls Her dice 
Until up comes our number
And the vital  thread She snips
With Her shears.

Sardonic yet unsatisfied
She hies off with Her earthly winnings
Insatiably in search of more
Knowing full well 
That Her cup will never be full
Nor capture the essence
Of Her mortal targets
