Another Day to Die
Death lurks in the closet, in the attic, on top of the refrigerator, in a
locked case with glass doors.
Death takes the children playing, in the classroom, on the street, sleeping
in bed, watching a road race.
Death creeps behind a candy store trip, rains down over city and farm,
ambushes from behind a patio door, in the middle of a birthday party, during a
chat outside a home.
Death meets children betrayed, abused, stalked, ignored – absorbing breath
and closing eyes, taking more killed by man. than nature.
