I met The Reaper

By ruffedges

I met The Reaper


And he had a story to tell


I sat and I listened


I was under his spell


 


He told me tales


Of things he had seen


Wars and battles and dinners


With the king and the queen


 


He caroused with the best


And he danced among the stars


Sex and drugs and women


Rock and roll and fast cars


 


I asked why he was here


If it was something I had done


He said don’t you worry


I’ll treat you just like a son


 


And said


I’ll be back to get you someday


Oh I’ll be back to get you someday


 


I asked him questions


About things he had done


If he started wars and


Caused the death of the young


 


He said what I’ll tell you


Is I’m nasty through and through


And there’s nobody living that


Could do the things I do


 


We talked for a while


And he had me in tears


He was the culmination


Of all my fears


 


I told him stories of


Sun shine and wind


He told me tales of


Angels who’d sinned


 


 


I told him I was afraid


And not ready to die


He just laughed his head and


He waved his hand goodbye


 


And said


I’ll be back to get you one day


Oh I’ll be back to get you one day
