Cheapen the Wait by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Death moves along

with a fiendish gait;

as destiny stalks all

whilst preparing your fate.

Time draws near

for the scythe to appear;

Hear that wailing yowl

while trembling with fear.

Absolve your loss through a

blackened shadowed cross.

You cherish all the hate;

then cheapen the wait.

You’re adrift within delusional

lies and distorted pious faith.

The Reaper awaits his prize

just beyond your frantic cries.
