The Day Mom Died

Mom didn’t die

The day she died.

She ate a pill

Said open wide.

Then her good life

And death collided.

They didn’t know they met.

There was no regret.

Just, hello Reaper.

Mother’s keeper.

You old sneaker

Skulking up behind her.

Death, we knew, would find her.

Said, don’t be so damn kind sir.

Don’t go quietly to that night.

Resist now with all your might.

Mother, now’s the time to fight.

Fight us for your very life.

Fight us for the right

To lose your mind

So damn unkind.

To die while still alive.

Barry Williams

Much of what I write will be quite understandable to insane folks.

The rest will be, uh, less understandable...
