Death 184

In these 9 days of death,
The abyss of death is your partner, your coat.

The slim slender lady woman madam
Of Death is 9 days long
The abyss of death is your partner, your coat.

You might as well know
I am bored and your Death is soon

The long slim triplets
Thinner than steam
Dying, death, and dead
I am bored and your death is soon.

Cuddles up to you for the 9 days of death
To drag you through
The light gray
The deep blue
The darkest jumping yellow.
