Death is a headache that remains embedded
And a graveyard that leaves some to dread it.
Discrimination will always be a factor,
For hatred and bigotry will flee no faster.
Fraud occurs at the top-most position like presidents.
We bear that tradition for it lives within our essence.
Laws aren't always helpful when executed.
Officials are often baleful and never prosecuted.
Democracy is far from flawless and
The world is cemented with mucus lawless.
The rich glamour in novelty;the poor gutter in poverty.
Money liberates the guiltiest and WAR is the filthiest.
Medicine, a form of short-term cure,
For the body and soul will never pure.
Diseases spread like feral fire.
The living soul will brittle and expire.
Tragedy - a division of living.
Misery - a component of existing.
Death is like a doorbell, for He will be visiting.
So you might as well live.
