Dust to Dust

Everybody has a bag of dirt

that they must eat during their lifetime


Some folk keep it right to the end

where they end up choking on it


Some folk get it served to them at school

or somewhere in the pecking order


Some get it rammed down their throat

whichever way, everyone has to eat their

bag of dirt


Some folk help it down with alcohol

some with narcotic unconsciousness


Others grind it between their teeth

spitting grit over their family and friends


Whilst others disguise it by baking it

and adding sugar, tie ribbons and bows

all over, but it’s still a bag of dirt


Eat your dirt and dispose of the bag responsibly
