The Boatman…a poem

empty brown boat on body of water

the boat looks different
to each one
crossing the
River Styx
so don’t be surprised
when your turn comes
and this is what you
are asked to board
the Boatman’s
boats
never sink
but be warned
I wouldn’t put my hands
in the water
If I were you
and always
keep a couple
of extra coins
in your pocket
