Horrible Death

I. One Dignity Delays For All

I.

One dignity delays for all—
Okay, I’ll just say it’s death.
None can avoid this purple—
Definitely death.

Coach it insures, and footmen,
Chamber and state and throng
Bells, also, in the village,
As we death death along.

What dignified attendants,
Deadly deadened death.
How loyally at parting
Their death-like death do death!

How pomp surpassing ermine,
Deathy McDeath O’Death,
When simply you and I
Die deathily dead death.
