Down by the Crick


Don’t get too messy now
The little casket needs your full attention
And yes, legs, you have to stay firm too
The soul can’t escape the vessel
Holding another vessel
Or so the story goes

Someone was waiting for the man
Holding his little wooden box
Made from the finest oak

“Pardon, sir, but you look like a man…”
It was the first time in half a century
That a casket containing failed life
Was used to bludgeon a man

Stay strong
You have two to put into the ground
The forces gave you a nice day for it
“There’s always something to be grateful for”
Said yesterday’s sermon

So relax, take a breath, and be comfortable with nature as is, son
