Cemetery Rut

Behind the white church

With the steeple

Holes have been dug

For many people


Those people don't move

They stay in the ground

They stay in their rut

They don't make a sound


They can get sun

They can get showers

Tombs decorated

With beautiful flowers


Manicured landscaping

The green grass cut

In spite of all this

They stay in their rut


Day after day

In the same room

Year after year

In the same tomb


We can live our life

Stagnant and strange

Digging our ruts

Fighting change


We can stick to the usual

Perform the customary

Yet we will be no different

Than a beautiful cemetery
