A few words about death.
Use to be dying wasn’t looked on as a grand adventure – whether pagan, unbeliever, king or queen there was a casual acknowledgement that death was to be respected.
Grand is the lie now that if one likes what he, or she is doing, death is somehow their friend – rather than a fiend to be respected.
But You have severely broken us in the place of jackals,
And covered us with the shadow of death.
