Yearly Remembrance

Who dies on a Friday night?

 

Years ago now

The silly question lingers

A mantra

Not looking for an answer

 

Who dies on a Friday night?

 

A mantra

To scare away sadder thoughts

And complicated feelings and

Unfinished sentences

 

Who dies on a Friday night?

 

You did

The repetition is a clever and effective reinforcing point to the theme of the poem. Quite simple and direct with the hammer blow in two words. Good stuff.
