Dead Or Alive Takes The Dive!

Not many seem to be wanted in such a way anymore. Maybe that was a thing of lore. Are any even wanted like that? The PC nuts wouldn't allow where they are at. But it is still being done. In a much more life saving way, sorta, it is spun.

Dead or alive.
Time to survive.
Survival is key.
For you and me.

But it's dead.
Dead in bed.
Dead and ready.
Hmm that is steady.

The lines you string.
String or something.
Something for you.
Yep, it's true.

Deadline is here.
Send it near.
Don't miss the deadline.
Things must align.

But it got moved.
Moved and grooved.
Now you're not dead.
Get out of bed.

The line needs fixing.
Deadline you're nixing.
A new deadline comes due.
So lines can die times two?

Moved once more.
A death of lore.
Lines died times three.
That gets a woweee.

So death not dead.
Something new is said.
Those lines aren't dying.
New work you are spying.

Alive they are.
Like gas in a car.
They keep on a going.
An Energizer showing.

So deadlines aren't dead.
Does that hurt your head?
They wish to survive.
Alivelines are alive.

Ever get deadlines that keep moving on? Doesn't that prove the dead part is a con? Don't you love deadlines at your sea? Especially when they become alivelines for thee? See now? Don't raise an eyebrow. Dead or alive is thriving today. At least with lines that come to play. Maybe snow would have a deadline forever come to pass? That would work for my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  4. Deadlines can be good
    Otherwise many would
    Just be the walking dead.
    That’s something I dread.

  12. Dead or alive
    doesn't matter their demise
    just so they're caught
    after they're sought.

  16. We humans have a tremendous interest in the subject of death in general, don't we? The expression death/dead finds its way into a lot of sayings and words.

  17. I do some of my best work when I'm on a deadline. If I have too much time to dilly dally, then I just don't want to do anything. But when push comes to shove, I give it my all.

  20. Deadline could lead to headline
    Many would say, "Oh that's just fine'"
    Send up a flare, its's poison or cake
    Easy to see it's make or break
