Life after death

Life after death

In spite of the gardeners
Who scour and spray with fervor

In spite of the gardeners
Who growl furiously and stab with their spades

In spite of the gardeners
Who resume the killing with every new dawn

The crabgrass sprouts and the weeds erupt
Sprinkling themselves on the manicured lawn

The crabgrass sprouts and the weeds erupt
Infiltrating the graveyard with unassailable proof of life after death
