Part 1: The Arrival

A stranger arrived late thursday night
Dressed all in black in his fog covered flight
He raised his eyes up and stared up at the moon
He needed his rest and he needed it soon
So up my steps he stolled, right to my door
"Open up," he yelled "my feet are awefully sore"
I let him in as not to be thought rude
As he sat down I caught glimpse under his hood
The vision I saw quickly stopped my breath
My late night visitor was none other than Almighty Death
"Take it easy, my lad," he said, "I'll get out of here fast
You see, all this walking and killing is a pain in the ass
So I will rest a bit, then your car I will seize
So hurry up son and give me your keys"
I acted quickand got him what he asked
Then he rose with a pop and a crack
He walked outside and hopped in my ride
Powerless to stop him, I just watched as I sighed
He started the car and prepared to drive away
"Before I go," he said, "there is something i must say"
What he said next filled me with dread and sorrow
"Have a nice night, I'll see you again tomorrow"

I think this is the poetry that hooked me on your works initially. Good stuff and glad to see it here too!

Wow.. seriously nice.. was the ending supposed to make me laugh though?

I've always sucked at poetry but I read a lot. This IS damn good.
