Sure of Success
by Roger Fritz, 2-28-13
I sit in my living room, in my rocking chair, by my fire,
and I read a good book while I wait for death.
Good books are easy to find in these modern times.
I google the phrase 'good books', and there they are:
waiting for me.
Like old friends they welcome me aboard the rowboat
for a festive crossing of the last great river.
Death is easy to find, too.
All I need to do is wait, and in due course of time,
he'll find me.
