barking up the wrong tree…

Image by CWMartin

i know it’s customary
to visit
a gravesite
and
talk to
a dear
departed one
but
there’s
no one
there
what makes you think
that any spirit
worth
their clay
would chose
to hangout
around
a place
enveloped in
so much sorry
when
there are
celestial parties
to attend
i’m telling you
nobody’s
there
but
if it ease your conscience
for
things done
said
or
not
done
nor
said
when they were alive
go ahead
and
stop by for a chat
but
don’t go asking for favors
or
for
the spirit
to intercede
on
your behalf
with
some divine being
hell
it deities didn’t listen
to them
when
they were alive
what makes you think
that
they’ll be a response
now
anyways
nobody’s
there
