The Landlord

Years back my friend Jarkko

Of Turku, Finland, wrote:

Life is a rented room,

A phrase just a tad sinister

In Finnish as their word

For life opens

Your mouth wide

While room

Makes your smile

Disappear

Wiping that smirk

Off your face

Which is

How death

Will manage our lips.
