impregnated with dye…

impregnated with dye

open graves
on the hillside
no trace
of bodies
within
what
happened
to the bodies
did they
arise
or
were they
just stolen
hallowed ground
or not
or
set upon
a pedestal
enshrined
in clear acrylic
museum masterpieces
evidence of the divine
museums
perhaps
found in
london
or
rome
but
maybe
the bones were
just ground
into medicine
for the common cold
by those
seeking gold
now here’s
a thought
perhaps
all
involved are
seeking gold
their
for-sale-amulets
filled
with crushed bones
or
just
plain sawdust
the profit yield
seems
the same
whatever
the game
