Cash Grab

By Caleb James K.

Running fast
with cash in hand
the gun went off.

With a blast
sans demand
because there was blood in his cough.

Hide the stash
but can barely stand
this wasn’t how it was supposed to jump off.

He was hit
running out the door
now bleeding in an alley.

A robbery gone to shit
when he left the store
now nearing Death’s valley.

A seizure fit
he hit the floor
his heart couldn’t rally.

Back to life
eyes bugged wide
bleeding on the ground.

So much strife
he couldn’t hide
with so many ghosts around.

so easy to do
as he looked to the sky so drab.

so easy to do
to convince himself his life was worth a quick cash grab.
