rape of a graveyard

majestic graveyard, once
now overturned pieces
broken headstones
tossed about
unkempt grass and weeds

lasses n’ lads razed the dead
with bottles of wine
too much time
were they not raised
to know better, or care

waves of people
time forgot
overturned, broken
weeds hide them
if your eye’s on the ground

forever
on mute
as their words no longer
lay erect

to tell us their names
