a corner plot…

a corner plot

will there be a burial
i think not
but
it’s tradition
there’s nothing to bury
but it’s
tradition
look
war has faded
our pristine traditions
and
glimmering visions
of heaven
they’ve been replaced
by
earth the color death
oh
once
it was our tradition
to honor
a family’s with great respect
if a loved died in battle
for our concept of freedom
we even when so far
as to protected
those who survived
now
only dollars matter
and how
you get them
doesn’t matter
and
it doesn’t matter
who you destroy
as long as
you don’t have to suffer
along side them
so
there will be
no burial
unless
we choose
to bury
tradition
