Death watched as the boy tossed the burlap bag in the river. Meows become bubbles, then go silent. And they call Me cruel.
Looks like ROU is testing the ultimate RPG: I, Death

With a twist!
That's great, my friend.
I look forward to the inevitable "Death: Haiku or Sonnet?" thread here one of these days.

Next, "Answering Machine Messages, by Death"

..............

Death is trying to reinvent himself, to convince people that he's not like everyone says, he's alright. Wants you to see his better side.

Because, face it, Death is just a farmer, a tiller of earth. And the earth is loathe to return to earth. Death has to labor for a living.

Alas, this year's crop was decimated by the Mediterranean GreeceFly. Or was it the California Brown Rat?

She talked awhile in the morning and waited for him to doze off, then peacefully slipped away. She never liked goodbyes.

At first, I'd thought I was blind. But, eventually, I learned it was everything else that'd ceased to exist. So... Good?

Sounds like one of those pieces of cheap translation software. You enter "May the wind always be at your back", and it translates to "May the wind always blow from your backside".

As it turned out, it wasn't a rock, but a rock lobster. It devoured the entire unwary family with its dripping proboscis.

I gave a cannibal a severed arm, and fed him for a day. Later, I gave that same cannibal a meat cleaver, and fed him for life.
