For Poppi (#24)

Death, you thug,
You have returned
With your senseless touch
To rob us of goodness
In the form of our patriarch
Who put honor and civility
Above ego and materialism
Whose faith and family
Will not let you
Bring darkness to his spirit
Or our souls
We will grieve his passing
But rest assured, Death
That our lives will continue
To stand in the light
So brightly borne
By our belief in our lives that were
Nurtured by his gentle way that
You cannot touch
So off with you,
You troublesome hack
Don’t return
For we are over you
And will continue to live
In Poppi’s greatness
