Dinner with Donne and Shakespeare

around every corner
death lurks
unwanted

waiting
waiting

patience
is a virtue
for time
stands still
for no man
&
the bell always
tolls for thee

while
in reflection we
hope
&
hide

waiting
waiting

is it worth
the effort

is it worth
the pain

as time
slips slowly by
&
bones begin
their endless
aching

waiting
waiting

so alas
poor poet
we knew him
well

pen to paper
words scribbled
on the walls
of time
while
the gods
feast on wine
&
immortality

waiting
waiting

laughing
at our feeble
folly
as the end
descends
upon our stage
&
each actor
performs
their final
role

waiting
waiting
waiting
