A Dire Outcome for Mr. Bloom

Not by explosion
Not by blood loss
Not by a rabid animal on the streets

Not by plane crash
Not by snake bite
Not by accidental stabbing by cleats

Not by knife
Not by fire
Not by drowning in a pool of oil

Not by stroke
Not by heart attack
Not by a dirty infected old boil

Not by cannibalism
Not by cancer
Not by an allergic reaction to an apple he took

Not by virus
Not by old age
Not by an accident with a grapple: type hook

It is true...
There was a dire outcome for Mr. Bloom
And yet still...
We cease to know what caused his death and his doom
