death must be sweeter

death must be sweeter

The industrial march begins
under the dense cover of dawn.
Many rise reluctantly,
smacking the snooze
on strident alarms,
to do the morning shuffle.

Shots of caffeine surge
through veins varicosed by stress
and the burden of bills
that wouldn’t be paid
‘cause the need to lay bread
on the dinner table
trumps the greed of collectors
every time.

Some leap from the cover
of cozy comforters,
roused by internal clocks
clicking inspiration in their heads;
no lattes needed here,
thank you;
these self-starting
turbo-charged engines
run on zeal
and the promise
of a very green future.

Others just lay in bed,
spirits crushed
by crosses they couldn't bear;
voices hushed
by forces that most men fear…

Surely death must be sweeter.

James G Paul Sr
