and the joke’s on us…

like
a proverbial joke
we can see
the light
at the end
of
the tunnel
but
here’s the punchline
it’s
death’s train
all the stations
along
the
way
life’s stages
were places
we
could not stay
no matter
how much
we enjoyed
them
so
here
we are
living
another platitude
looking death in the face
