The new cemetery in town

Green carpet and blue chairs

Tea light candles and fresh flowers

Brand new address, brand new day

Can’t bring up a graveyard, can they?

High-minded ideas

Perky, colorful brochures

Paints and stains to brighten

A family’s welfare forgotten

Pots and crockery

China and bakery

Provided even ice cream and dairy

But couldn’t answer a person’s query?

Through the protective glass

Stands all signs of divinity

But there is no clarity

For the dead in their own class
