BURIAL
(9/14/10)


old spade
stabs earth
turns flesh
extinct

new wound
makes room
eats more
dead meat

   blood
   and dirt
   in murderous sum
   assures new crops
   will someday come

   screams
   and dreams
   of lives undone
   silenced by soil
   oblivion

no stone
to head
this grave
of greed

no name
no date
a soul
now freed

   blood
   and dirt
   in murderous sum
   assures new crops
   will someday come

   screams
   and dreams
   of lives undone
   silenced by soil
   oblivion

gone
and forgotten
gone
and forgotten
gone
and forgotten

dead
and gone
