Deep thanks to Monsieur Klaus, Editor of the Outlaw Poetry Network, for featuring my work on his literary platform!
“The great leveler” by Sofia Kioroglou
No shock, no engulfment…
Just the natural corollary to physical birth.
Death is standing on your porch screaming out
and beckoning you to come downstairs.
Unbudgeable and unbribeable.
The eternal, unbiased judge
is holding the Book of Life,
Your name no longer written in it.
The great leveller not paid for favors
is riding triumphantly his chariot
The dead, the great and small
now standing before the Throne.
