Nailed

A guy told my mom
I won't cross 13
why
thirteenth child
first seven dead
at birth or about

later another one said
I will return from heaven
I did in 77

all kept guessing
but as many say
100 years live I may

Covid's exemption is needed today
then I will live to breathe another day
come what may

Forgetmenot

Even when I die some day
certainly not today its passed away
but could be another auspicious day
one day
some day
you all could say
