EVERYDAY DEATHS
(10/13/16)

they happen
continually

they seem
necessary
somehow

sometimes
we hear
about them

most often
not

people
die
in the most
simple

the most
stupid
of ways
on a regular
basis

this
has always
been the
case

the big
crashes

the big
crimes

the big
wars

get
the big
press

but the
majority
of us
just expire

due
to age

to disease

to accident

not very
interesting

not very
newsworthy

unless
it happens
to us

then
it seems
somewhat
a shame
