    Death, the tired professional

    Overtime, we learn to limit ourselves
    and that is where death truly embarks
    on a journey to collect our souls
    occasionally it makes a stop
    when we resist
    sometimes, it even thinks to turn back
    hoping that this rebellion will finally
    mean one less client
    and immortality
    but we disappoint, almost always
    and death has to come back
    albeit slower this time
    dragging its feet
    wondering if all the drama was really necessary.
