Death

There is another
He is in the fish,
The air,
The weed killer.
He is in the roads,
Houses,
In hovels and palaces.
There is nowhere that he is a stranger.
There is no way to escape him.
He does what he does best.
Doing what he is.

He does not wait; he works.

(Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman)
