Unremarkable

A poem about a dead man that I hardly knew.

Johnny never made the news.
I’ve been checking every day.
I thought that some reporter, somewhere,
might have a thing to say.

It’s odd to think about it;
A mortal human life,
cast about in normalcy
but ending up in strife.

I guess he was a stranger.
I guess I shouldn’t care.
As with his mortem in the news,
he was hardly even there.
