The Tomb of the Last Living Poet

An Apocalyptic Vision

There was a memorial service held yesterday

At the tomb of the last living poet.

Hundreds came with flowers to lay

By the tomb of the last living poet.


The speakers, of note, had nothing to say

At the tomb of the last living poet.

The death of the language got in the way

At the tomb of the last living poet.


The mourners in solemn procession trudged

Past the tomb of the last living poet.

Will our civilization be eternally judged

By the tomb of the last living poet?
