the dead man won't know

they say
“if you go looking for trouble
dig two graves”
but a grave’s not a grave
till there’s a dead man in it
or a foot
they say
“you have one foot in the grave”
darling, I don’t
they’re six feet deep
I don’t have legs six feet
so let’s call a spade a spade;
and say a hole’s a hole
and a dead man’s dead
what you do with one
(dig a hole
with a dead man’s bones)
or the other
(fill a hole
with a lost man’s soul);
the dead man won’t know.
