The Reaper

 

we have no clue who he was

this man now faded into the mist

his lifes echo has fallen silent

it cannot tell us any more of him

this man who did nothing more

than the daily labours of his life

we have no idea what rivers flowed

and where, beneath his yellow hat

as perhaps he was also unaware

he was joyfully observed by another

himself of Earths most famous men
