‘Death wears many suits’

He creeps, and he lurks; 
the soul-taker lies in wait. 
Like a morbid statistician; 
anxious for your death date. 

Punctual in his appointments:
Death dons a clever disguise. 
When your hourglass runs out,
he pounces before you realize. 

At times its a soldier’s uniform 
or a surgeon’s bloody scrubs. 
In all, Death wears many suits;
shuffled like the ace of clubs.

He takes great pride in his work;
swooping down to seize your life.
An artist employs many methods;
whether by bullet, poison or knife. 

The reaper always slithers near;
deftly camouflaged in the dark.
Your carrion ghoul waits to strike.
In his book he’ll leave your mark.
