Poem: Tempting Death
Like flies that have out lived their stay, each to drop to their dismay.
One life at a time.
Tempting and fair is she,
With lips that stain and give their fee.
Such lustful ways she sings about,
The kiss of death she takes life out.
You can not run, you can not hide,
For when she calls she has her pride.
She'll take your life and with her kiss,
If you she wants, there is no miss.
So live your life in time you'll see,
Death will come and beckon thee.
