Rigor Mortis

“If we don’t know life, how can we know death?” Confucius

We all must die this I know,
but the puzzle that remains is
why some go before growing old,
snatched from life before their time.

Then there are those who live on
regardless of what they do
feasting on rich food
and glorious wine.
