A Conversation With Death
kripto

What happened?
 1
One day I woke up
 2
Felt funny
 3
Realty's different
 4
Not like it was Monday
 5
 
 
Everything's twisted
 6
headed to the end
 7
promising things
 8
they were all pretend
 9
The news spews bullshit
 10
Or that's just what we're told
 11
Should I just sit
 12
Or get up and be bold?
 13
 
 
How is this reality?
 14
 
 
Have I been tricked, bamboozled, hoodwinked, deluded, deceived. maybe duped, fooled, cheated, swindled and used.
 15
 
 
Is this a shaft, flimflam, sucker, snooker, allude?
 16
We are part of the hoax.
 17
Been coned, bilked, diddled, and rooked.
 18
 
 
This a charade,
 19
an illusion, mirage,
 20
Reality suspected to be
 21
Nothing more than a lie
 22
 
 
I got no
 23
ownership rights.
 24
But reasons to fight
 25
Seem apparent
 26
as frequent
 27
As the sun and the nights
 28
 
 
No more postponing
 29
death
 30
A check
 31
on my performance
 32
a little where have you been?
 33
Accomplishments enormous?
 34
 
 
-Oh not exactly,
 35
just been
 36
thinking of you,
 37
you've been
 38
all up
 39
in my mind
 40
lately,
 41
 
 
I've been obsessing it's true.
 42
much more
 43
like a memory
 44
when I come to.
 45
My dreams are filled
 46
with scenes
 47
of me
 48
with you.
 49
 
 
Oh death
 50
you so silly
 51
can you not
 52
put your hands
 53
on my leg
 54
really.
 55
I'm sorry
 56
but this is
 57
moving too
 58
quickly.
 59
 
 
I need some space
 60
oh please don't
 61
resent me,
 62
I love you and I need you
 63
to understand.
 64
The difference from doing wrong and right
 65
is making plans.
 66
 
 
So when you come back,
 67
I'll be here waiting,
 68
But it won't be patiently,
 69
Cause the whole world is baiting me
 70
So if it keeps up, this constant berating
 71
During deep meditation
 72
I'ma share your visit
 73
With all those who forgot of your existence
 74
 
 
Oh death, are you afraid?
 75
too timid?
 76
To be at my constant beck and call
 77
I get it.
 78
I know you ain't my slave
 79
But give me a minute to explain
 80
My Plan to you
 81
It involves the end of days
 82
 
 
are you gitty?
 83
With anticipation?
 84
Ready to commit mass devastation?
 85
So now, Do you understand?
 86
The difference from doing wrong and right, is making plans.
 87
 
 
To be clear I am the plan maker
 88
So just take a number dear
 89
Wait for the ground shaker
 90
And the whole world's holding hands
 91
Huddled together and cowering
 92
Praying that this their god's plan
 93
 
 
But unfortunately
 94
that's all a lie
 95
We've been telling our selves for centuries
 96
to blind the eyes
 97
Of the people, to control the sheep
 98
This country the sequel
 99
opened the gates for sleep
 100
 
 
But wake up, please wake up
 101
Right before you die
 102
So you can realize the errors
 103
In the way you've been living your life
 104
 
 
I'm sorry, I really am
 105
But this is my methodology,
 106
this was my plan
 107
To bring us close
 108
to the brink of destruction
 109
To show the pointlessness of human construction  
 110
 
 
We ain't Gods and we ain't his people
 111
No reward is coming to the meek or the feeble
 112
This is Earth, literally dirt,
 113
we have no shoes or no shirt
 114
We get no service
 115
 
 
So when death comes
 116
Don't be nervous
 117
Open the door and embrace him
 118
Show some courage  
 119
 
 
Cause it's the end
 120
don't worry
 121
On the last page
 122
of your story
 123
There's no reason to apologize
 124
don't be sorry
 125
 
 
Cause wrong and right is as imaginary as making plans
 126
So death and people
 127
do you understand?
 128
That glass is just sand
 129
And man can not stand
 130
Up to the man
 131
Who is extending his hand
 132
He has the power
 133
 
 
But this is the hour
 134
To change
 135
The definition at hand
 136
We have the power
 137
the numbers
 138
To free the birds,
 139
that are in cages
 140
To hear them sing
 141
for the first time in ages
 142
But please remember what derange is
 143
Because forgetfulness is as dangerous.
 144
 
 
And this ain't just comin from my cranium.
 145
Believe me man, I ain't delirious
 146
Every word spoken so serious.
