Don’t Tread On The Dead

The graveyard
had been redesigned
The walkways had
been realigned

The biggest change
At least to me
Was the signs now out
For all to see

Five short words
that we all read
Not keep off the grass
Don’t tread on the dead

Genius,
You’d have to say
Don’t walk where we
The dead all lay

This sign,
It said it best
Don’t tread on the dead
Let them all rest

Keep on the path
Respects may be paid
Just stay off the grass
One request made

The simplest sign
The words stay in your head
Not…keep off the grass
Just…Don’t tread on the dead
