Epitaph for the Unburied Dead
By Willard Wattles
 
THE OLD men sit and sit
  Long after they are dead,
And no one seems to know of it—
  They look so kind and staid.
 
The young men beat the bars        5
  That hold them fast inside.
Then one day comes, they beat no more,
  And know not they have died.
