Poetry Slam Poem: Death by William Butler Yeats

Line 1
Nor dread nor hope attend

Line 2
A dying animal;

Line 3
A man awaits his end

Line 4
Dreading and hoping all;

Line 5
Many times he died,

Line 6
Many times rose again.

Line 7
A great man in his pride

Line 8
Confronting murderous men

Line 9
Casts derision upon

Line 10
Supersession of breath;

Line 11
He knows death to the bone –

Line 12
Man has created death.
