Dapper Demons


 

I saw the grim reaper
last night in my dreams
He stood quietly in the doorway
just over my shoulder
He startled me, appearing
on the edge of darkness
without a sound, dreary flat figure
Silhouette of doom
Where his head should have been, at first, nothing
only a dark empty spot
And then on closer inspection, a black hood
crowning the black emptiness
where his face should have been
And instead of robe & dagger
he wore a black pinstriped suit
Three piece
Double breasted
Very dapper
My demons like to show up in style

    I like the upbeat of this–so powerful to use a sense of humor as ammo against the dark forces. I see him leaving abruptly, shocked, with his tail neatly tucked between his pin-striped legs.

    Think yourself lucky he didn’t charge you interest. 😉
