Beware Of The Reaper

2014-10-27 14.36.47


It’s aphotic and gloomy

Fog and mist in the waft

The Reaper seeks out

You must, RUN fast!


Children beware of

His instrument of death

The Reapers long reach

Here to collect your head.


He trolls the graveyard

Stay out at night

He wants to act

Looking for a fight!


The shadows close in

You search for cover

Behind the headstone

You sit and blubber.


Close your eyes

Pray with all your might

The Reaper won’t creep in

And take your life.


His skull like face

Cloaks and Daggers

Razor sharp wings

He wants to STAB ya!


Gliding through the air

The Reaper hunts

Hunts for a head

A head to dismember.


So Beware,

Little ones

Beware of the Reaper

    Nice poem, Michelle. This reminded me that when we were in Aix-en-Provence last year, I got a photo of a guy oblivious to death walking close behind:

      Well, I’m fairly new to this (giggle) because I’ve already visited a few of your friends, enjoyed what I read and decided to follow them. I don’t believe I mentioned you, but I clicked on their links that they left in your comment section. I’ll be sure to mention you in the future. 🙂
      Thanks again Susie!!
