A mouse died in my house.

The odor is nasty.

Why does death stink?

I know the biology of it.

Life leaves the body, the organs rot away

Causing the odor, but why?

Why a horrible odor?

It is a signal to scavengers to come for a meal?

Or is it an announcement that

Once again death has triumphed

And all that remains of the once living is the stink.

Not very polite of death but it certainly gets my attention.

Maybe that’s all death really wanted all along.
