We'Re Late

3.50   (2 votes)

Clocks cannot tell our time of day

For what event to pray

Because we have no time, because

We have no time until

We know what time we fill,

Why time is other than time was.

Nor can our question satisfy

The answer in the statue's eye:

Only the living ask whose brow

May wear the Roman laurel now;

The dead say only how.

 

What happens to the living when we die?

Death is not understood by Death; nor You, nor I.
