FINDING RELIGION

FINDING RELIGION
On the bus
Coming home
From work
I’m on my phone
Looking for a
WiFi signal
None available
No connection
Then
Suddenly I
Find “GOD”
But his connection
Is weak and
I’m not allowed
To use or sign on
To his network
Which upsets
Me just a little bit
But I don’t think
It was him
Because
No one on
The bus had
Sandals or a
Beard
In January

Death Is Open For Business

DEATH IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS

First?

I stopped by for Emily
And then for all her friends
Sometimes (over the years)
I still forget all their
Names

Writers, poets
Actors & the commonplace
Of sorts, and the royalty always
Received special discounts
And deals

You see you might know me
I’ve been doing this for awhile
I used to keep scrolls
But now that’s just embarrassing
So I just use my phone
And everybody still
Knows my name
Maybe you’ve seen my
Profile on FB?
All the people
Talking about me

Damn .. I’m really popular

Because
Black is out and
Neon is in
I started the trend
By the way

And all the celebrities
Are just dying to
See me as always

So if you’re a famous
Rockstar please don’t
Message me or text me
I’m quite busy

And I don’t do
Crossroads pacts
Anymore
I only accept straight up cash

With no middle men

And these days
As you may have
Already guessed
I only  mostly deal directly with
Businessman & politicians

So got a problem?
Wanna be the president?
I’m willing to cut you
A deal

Btw? Did I mention
I’m on FB?

I’ve traded in my
Scythe for a credit card
Of souls and I
Make my withdrawals
Daily

So are you next
On my list?

Wouldn’t you like to be?

What?
The Reaper?
Pllllleeeeaaasssse …
I don’t go by that
Old fashioned name
Anymore

It’s been overused
Blue Oyster Cult & their more cowbell
Saw to that

Nope.

Nowadays
I simply call myself
An extraordinary broker
Of souls

(So let’s talk)

Because death
Is open for business

So
Here’s my card
Expect my call
I’ll be waiting
To meet you

Eventually
Everyone does
