Lady Death

Lady Death
by A.D. Winans


she holds the trump card
in a fixed game
she brought the iron man
lou gehrig to his knees
mocked babe ruth
at home plate
she skulks around
the circus grounds
looking for an accident
to happen


she was the last person
at the Alamo
she fed lorca a meal
of bullets
she waited table
at the last supper
she hired the barber
who cut samson's hair
she was the last
roman soldier at the
crucifixion
she tricked custer
into thinking he was
god
she's harder than
a pimp
she's cunning
she's cruel
she's after me
she's after you
she wears a top hat
she carries a cane
her eyes a dagger
aimed at your heart
