New York City owns an isle of shameWhere the dead are buried without a namePrisoners stack coffins six feet deepAs politicians watch and poor folks weep. For shame they call the island HartAnd from the morgue dead bodies cartFor shame they pile the coffins highAs if from Plague New Yorkers die. Not far away from […]

Green Burial

When comes the day for me to dieAnd in some distant graveyard lieMight not you hear this poem readAs earth is shoveled o’er my head. While gently lowered into the groundAnd to eternity surely boundMight not aloud this poem be readTo all with ears, alive or dead. If ears you have for an old man’s […]

Heaven on Earth
