DIRGE FOR A DARK DAY

Written by: Nola Perez

The man 
with the scythe
is having his way
with your day.
You think it's no 'biggie'?
It's like the coins 
in your Piggy-
you counted eleven,
he calls it seven,
says he's the brethren
who delivers you
to heaven. His is
the power that 
monitors your 
hour.
