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.
