January's Honorable Mention

Outsmarting the Grim Reaper


Every morning when I awake

And reach for my paper and coffee cake

I check to see if my name appears

Trying to quell my deepest fears

That this might be the very day

When the old grim reaper has his way

It’s really a little game we play!


He’s trying to catch me unawares

I don’t think that he really cares

When it will be as long

As he can say he’s won!

The game is over…so long…it’s done

But I must outwit his nefarious scheme

For it has always been my dream

To live as long as my enemies do

Longer is better, from my point of view!


So I eat my veggies, drink my milk

Cream my face till it’s smooth as silk

When I drink my wine, I never drive

Insuring I will arrive home alive

I watch my weight, walk a mile a day

And watch out for cars along the way

I’ve followed the plan to a tee

But there is a problem that I see.


I’ve gotten too old to run and hide

As I feel my Bones rub together inside

So I’ve decided to lure him to bed

But with someone else lying there instead

Since love is blind, he will not see

The victim he smites is not me

The game is over…so long…it’s done

But he’ll never know…it is I who’s won!

Bea....when you look back over your long life, & the happiness that you have already given the world, you can now realize that you have already won the game - years ago. And I agree with the review by Cecelia below too! This makes you a 10 - you know! :)
