Mrs and Mrs Death

Mr and Mrs Death

He’s hanging around adding again.
She squats, paring her bright red nails.
A famine is her garden.
He vacations in war zones.
They prefer the elderly and sick.
Children, a delicacy for both.
There’s no stopping them.
They existed before taxes.
Guess I’ll just have to go with him
since my brave wife took her hand first.
