Burial

In the quest for glory

when the wind was holy

water drops were steady

all the lights were ready

then the dark set free

near the foot long tree

in the box laid to rest

for the body put to test

covered in white all along

mercy the claim of him being strong

his friends cry near the barn

while the kin come down to mourn

then they leave him alone

and all the tears borne were gone

alas! the eternal realm claim

misery is what the soul can blame

the world that he had bragged

nothing left for him to be bagged

so that was his bitter end

no more test for him to bend

but alas you all shall die

so move on and just lie

for the souls shall torn out

and the skin will burn out

no more no less thou shall bear

will god’s mercy halt your fear?

As death is its name

to put an end to the flame.
