Death Is My Caddy

Death is my caddy and the others
   in my party don't seem to notice.
He proposes the seven iron
   as I play under par.
While I get no holes-in-one,
   Death applauds my long putts.
I can feel Death's hot eyes
   as I wedge out of a sand trap.
Death chuckles when I
   murder the ball.
Death kindly offers advise
   on how I can improve my swing.
I fish some other's lost
   Titleist from the water hazard.
Lightning strikes me down
   as I tee off on the 13th hole.
I will wait for my companions
   at Gabriel's clubhouse bar.

Love and fear, you do it well. We laugh.
