The Undertaker …

Walking the silent night
crunched dead leaves making the only noise
I wrap the cloak around me , it’s cold
I walk quietly in the cemetery
I am the undertaker!
I’m old and worn out
Seen so many lifeless bodies, so many lifeless souls
I’m numb to the acrid smell of death as I
Nonchalantly dig up another grave
I feel part of the soil which has refuged
Tones of decayed flesh buried 6 feet under
Ah the strange irony of my job, I love pyers
I make money when life expires
I live cuz people die, I pray for people to die!
My sadistic mind keeps me sane
Your sorrow is my only gain
As I cover another grave with marble
I get up, away from hysterical sobs and whimpers
I steel myself and walk quietly away
Into the depths of the black cemetery
I am the Undertaker ….

About Hamza

A freebird at heart, I believe I am past the age where I can describe myself. I mean, haven’t we seen enough rape of the most commonly used adjectives ? Unless I find something different to describe myself, freebird should do it !

  1. Hamza, this is too good!
    You just turned a very simple subject into something so intense.

  2. Thanks man ! I wrote this around 4-5 years back …. in those days I had a strong liking of writing on anything I found appealing or different. This was inspired by a night visit to the cemetry. It is in truth, ironic; the nature of the job 🙂

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
