A sailor, who has seen the world,
fought in bloody battles,
chest embellished with awards
worn with pride.

Next to him an artist
a wizard with his paintbrush,
galleries filled with life,
yet nothing living.

Next to him a dancer
an epitome of grace,
his movements set the stage ablaze,
as well as the audience’s hearts.

Next to him a doctor,
who has saved many lives,
pulled souls away from the light,
many thank her for them still breathing.

Next to her a scientist,
a genius in every right,
whose ideas and innovations
made the world a better place.

All silent, all still
all lying in a wooden box
six feet under the ground
all are now the same.
