The Mortality Sequence

Death, the hei­nous King, jun­kets past us and them,
While Life, but a Court Jester, stands in caps and bells,
Direfully assaying to please the Eternal Throne.
And though he tra­vails, never does he cease,
The Master's wishes, he scrambles and he veils,
But then there's a snap of frost, and a bicker in haste,
When even the met­tle­some are relin­qui­shed,
Before the whet­ted Scythe with a Stygian hue,
The only time when the Tyrant grins, just chortles,
And the Motley Fool squalls and soli­cits.
