In every lie

To see through fear enough

to stand, not hiding

To realize

Ah Ha! Survive!

Old Death’s demise!

There’s a bit of life

in every lie

After all, whose life was Death’s

but yours and mine

that (mock-surprise)

we have survived

We with our lies

have lived

in and out of lives

one graveyard

to the next

each time

Surprise!

Ha! Ha! Reprise!

Survived.
