You expect it might happen someday,

But only to your elders.

We tend to agree that if nature has its way

You will stand weeping before

Your grandmother, your father.

Perhaps if you are loved and loving,

Nightmares come along these lines,

Your partner under the earth.

Friends are another thing entirely,

 

They are anyone’s guess.
