Grave

We dug a hole and climbed right in;
complicit in our daily sin.

 

Covered our heads with mud and dirt,
threw away soap, cleanliness hurt.

 

Stuffed stones in ears and sand in eyes,
painted on smiles, grew to despise.

 

Filled our hole with things of beauty,
played with the toys, did our duty.

 

Invited worms in for dinner,
they all got fat, we got thinner.

 

Wasting away our lives until
death do us part and we lie still.
