      The idea of death not being able to fulfill its duties and no one being able to die can be a reference to the short story "Aunty Misery" where a cranky old lady traps death in her pear tree when he comes to take her. When no one is dying the lady makes a deal with death, in which death will never come to take the lady to the next world.
