Yes, I'm having fun with the Reaper Grim . . . Hope you will enjoy my little jest . . . Time to leave that wretched Desperado to his wretched self . . .

death is weaker
than my will
part of me can stand stronger
against the reaper and the joker
damn them
to the slag heaps of justifiable
and putrefied remains of
the ghoul
who calls himself the grim apparition of death
my fate is within my moral fiber
I have found love
nay, love sought me out
claimed me
and that love
that oh so precious love
shields me from the doom
which awaits every man
I greet it with a smile
for I comprehend
something the reaper grim
cannot fathom
that . . .
he is powerless against my
all-enduring love
and Dorian Gray legacy

" the reaper grim cannot fathom that . . .

Profound poetry more than humorous JerryPat. I like it a great deal though, either way. Reaper Grim? I've a job for him. He can cut the high grass from around my drainage ditch, that is if his scythe is worth a tinker's damn!

Good reading you.  

Touch, but don't look

Hah! You bet Jack, that would be a great job for the s.o.b. That you many times over.
