The Grim Reaper.

by Steven Beesley

The Grim Reaper:

He is the personification of death,
cloaked skeleton holding a scythe.
To take away your very last breath,
pray that he never comes to visit.

Most gruesome specter you will ever find.
He glides by night, his destined
victims for which he'll seek.
He will see you in hell before you speak.

So mind yourself as you sleep,
for his coming will make you weep.
Angel of death with one thing on his mind.
He will track down all those that he must seek out and find.

His midnight black robe you will
never want to see.
should you ever see him,
you know that he is seeking thee.

Your head he will sever like grain,
he will not stop, he won't refrain.
He will not talk, he will not speak,
grab your coat and begin to flee.

Steven Beesley (C)
