Death is Stalking my Aunt

Mr. Death is after Aunt Mary,
she has the evil cancer.

I love my aunt,
and wish this wasn’t true.

Lady has lived a good long life,
but I don’t want it to be her time.

Mary is a feisty lady,
and hope it will be enough
to get her through.

She became part of the
widow’s club, a few years ago.
A group many of us
have to be part of when
the love of our life
is taken by Mr. Death.

Mary is a feisty lady
and will argue with
Mr. Death.

She better win. I am almost out of older relatives and if I lose Mary I will be down to one with alzheimer's. I am the oldest of four and my two younger siblings are dead. Remaining sister is in poor health. Yikes!

I like the direct style of this, Marti. It challenges sentimentality; no mawkish melancholy for you. A toast to Aunt Mary, who is a fine example to the craven-hearted.
Thank you for your Twitter follow. I'm pleased to be acquainted! :)
