There Comes A Time – Jacob T. Reilly

There Comes A Time

There comes a time
so like the times before
when the diseased dove
croaks its last coo
and the live-oak stills dead
so like the times before
but for the will to live
a time to dig one’s roots
deeper still quell the blight
by forcing one more heart
beat to pump out bad blood
there comes this time
of living to spite despite
death of the soul.
