You'll be hard-pressed to stop him from going too far
And be left by the roadside, for all your good deeds . . ."
~ X.J. Kennedy ~
"I wonder if death will come like a faded star
wrapped in fur and heavily made up,
her skeletal driver silent by the car.
'Darling, get in, we just thought we'd stop -- "
she'll say as he is opening the door
and with a ghoulish grin she pats the seat --
Even though we haven't met before
I've always felt that someday we would meet" " . . .

"Because I could not stop for Death -
He kindly stopped for me . . . "
