One Choice Remains

Often life more cruel than death,

pandemics to defy

Each breath of pain a new refrain,

whose fate we must comply

 We live each choice right to the end,

all consequence dethroned

Until the reaper grants reprieve,

no mercy to be shown

 This giant chorus sings aloud,

discordant and alone

The fear we face subservient to

the dread of the unknown

Those tracks we leave with blood to mark,

the distant by and by

One choice remains to end the game

—a final last goodbye
